2.5 lbs. Zambia Gold Natural Micro Lot NCCL Estate Fresh Various Roast Levels 100% Arabica Coffee Beans
This Zambian Gold Natural coffee comes from the NCCL Estate, located in the Kasama region of Zambia. With farms on elevations between 1300 and 1600 MASL, this region is ideal for high quality coffee. For the Natural-processed ‘Gold’ coffees, the best cherries are carefully selected with double handpicking (ensuring a consistency of over 98% of fully formed red ripe cherries) before being dried on raised beds. The cherries are spread across the beds in thin layers to ensure even drying, and regularly turned over a period of 3 to 4 weeks.
You will taste the milk chocolate transition to a dark chocolate and caramel finish. As this Zambia coffee cools, you will notice a touch of citrus spritzer flavor to brighten this cup.

Wanted to mix it up and this was recommended by Andrea. The natural processing gives it a wonderful sweetness. Medium roast provides for a superb cup.
