Our coffee bag labels describe flavors you should be able to detect with proper grinding, water, and brewing method. That said, not everyone has the same sense of smell and taste abilities. The tasting notes describe what WE detect when we brew that coffee – IT IS NOT FLAVORINGS WE ADD TO THE COFFEE. Each country of origin has unique flavors in their coffees based on farmer inputs, growing conditions (altitude, soil, rainfall, etc), and processing methods (washed, honey, natural). We hope that you experiment and taste what different parts of the world offer in a coffee experience.
