We love the Kii coffee for its unique flavor and standout cup quality. Superbly bright but balanced, with an incredibly refined orange-honey acidity layered with refreshing notes of blackberry and apricot. A smooth chocolate mouthfeel with a touch of caramel hugs all corners of this coffee’s complex body. As the cup cools down, juicy notes of green grape pop and spices of bergamot and tamarind linger in the finish.

FLAVOR: Blackberry, Apricot, Honey, Tamarind
