The Artery Community Roasters - My Cherry Amour
A coffee that's ethical, fruity and named after a Stevie Wonder song? What else could you need?
This is a natural processed coffee. Most coffees are washed coffees, which tend to provide more bright, acidic flavours. Natural coffees tend to be more unusual, sweet and "funky". They often provide a heavier mouthfeel and fuller body, with sweet and delicate aromas and notes.
One of the defining characteristics of a natural coffee is an overwhelming berry flavour, since the coffee seed (bean) is dried while still within the cherry.
