All the naturals were a bit short on the fruity. Thumbs up to the yellows, especially the bourbons which I thought were the beat of the three varieties. Yellow bourbon pulped natural was my favorite then the bourbon natural.Paul ThorntonThornton Coffee
I was talking to some customers yesterday, they didn't know I was the roaster, they were raving about how awesome the coffee is… one customer make a 30-mile drive on the weekends just because it’s that good.Daniel McDowellTache Coffee Company
I made the Mundo Novo natural a medium roast and tasting it today I can really taste the hints of different flavors. It’s amazing, but I really like the pulped natural the best so far. I have to say the cinnamon flavor really comes out!Tyler DrennanWind & Fire Coffee
