Full Cupping Notes

Welcome to Carmen Estate's exquisite coffee lot, offering a delightful range from caramel sweetness to bittersweet indulgence. Regardless of roast level, each cup presents a harmonious balance of flavors. At City roast, savor brisk acidity alongside notes of dark sugar, roasted nuts, and a subtle vibrancy reminiscent of black teas. While not as "bright" as African coffees, it adds a unique dimension to the profile, making it a noteworthy choice. Middle roasts, such as City+ and Full City, elevate the chocolate bittersweetness while maintaining a creamy caramel undertone, creating the perfect "daily drinker" coffee. Depending on your preference, discover top notes of roasted barley tea, almond cookie, and chocolate-covered macadamia nut, enhancing every sip with warmth and depth. Indulge in the inviting richness of Carmen Estate's exceptional offering.
