Thanks to Starbucks for providing me with the coffee to facilitate the review.
The Mount Ramelau originates from Timor and is balanced and very smooth. It has a mild herbal spice with a roasty-sweet finish. While sipping on this coffee, you can almost picture the smallholder farmers, meticulously tending each plant, and selecting only the ripest cherries to process, resulting in a smooth, refined cup of joe that I crave again and again!
The last coffee they sent over originates from Guatemala and is named Laguna de Ayarza. It's a very rich coffee, with a crisp citrus notes and a sweet, chocolatey after taste. The flavors are deep and complex, yet simple and delicious. I love sharing this coffee with my husband while we lounge in our backyard in the morning, it's just right for a pick-me-up!
