For this evaluation, the coffee was extracted in espresso at 94°C with an extraction of 25 ml in 27 seconds. The degassing of the coffee took around 48 hours. The crema is of a light hazelnut in color, while the aromas are slightly herbaceous and fruity, reminding us of pineapple and white peach. The taste of this coffee is not full-bodied, with a marked but not intrusive acidity and a light bitterness.
