I'm new to coffee and am discovering it primarily through cold brew. I found out very quickly on my first order from RhoadsRoast that I am NOT a fruity/floral coffee person. The Tanzanian peaberry was WAY too floral for me. This time around I experimented with the opposite end of the spectrum and tried both Peru Approcassi and Indo-Pacific Java Kayumas. The Peru Approcassi is excellent! It has none of the floral notes that I disliked, and all of the traditional flavors that I expected from coffee. It is excellent for cold brew, and even better hot in my opinion - which is strange, because I thought I preferred cold brew :) But this coffee is showing me both can be awesome!
And here's the awesome part: the Java-Kay is even better!!! For my tastes, the Java-Kay was slightly stronger, which is better for cold brew. It was a little richer/earthier/darker flavor, which is great because I love to mix my cold brew drinks into mochas and I need the coffee to be able to stand up to milk and sugar and chocolate and still shine through.
Both are great. I'd give the Peru a 4.8 and the Java-Kay a 5.0.
I'm very excited to have found my cold brew go-tos so quickly! Almost time for another order :)
