Juanachute "El Papal Lot" from Björklunds Kafferosteri.

Paraphrasing its description; a coffee from Costa Rica that grows at 1800 meters above sea level, with flavors of caramel and hazelnuts and a little sweetness.

I got it as a christmas gift from my parents (thank you!) and today I noticed that I had one proper cup worth of beans left so I decided to make myself some coffee and write a little review about it. I know that you are not supposed to save coffee beans for this long but I'm not a snob when it comes to these things.

The grounded beans has a very nice color and almost looks a little like cacao The smell is fruity with a sharp freshness.

The actual coffee brew, made with a french press, has IMHO a sweet citrusy taste. The citrusy sourness is maybe a bit too much for my taste but it is on the other hand well balanced with the sweetness. There is a hint of something I associate with expensive dark chocolate, maybe with a vague resemblance to nuts? To me the sweetness is more like the sweetness of a fruit rather than caramel.

This is probably not something I would buy for myself but definitely very enjoyable and interesting.

It looks like it's not available anymore which makes it even more fun to have had the opportunity to try it.
