    Sweet and fruity, first sip to last

    Review by Dan on August 26, 2015

    Over the years, I have had Konga coffees that were bursting with berries or mango. This Konga is more subtle, but is sweet and fruity with notes of blueberry cobbler or even the nostalgic notes of a long forgotten blueberry Eggo waffle. As it cools, the sweetness intensifies. It's like a lovely little kiss on the lips. Thank you for making this coffee part of your line-up.

    Best natural coffee I've had in a long time.

    Review by Will_H on March 4, 2014

    I enjoy coffee on par with nice wines. I have been a long fan of Stumptown Coffee, Intelligentsia coffee and other small roasters pushing the limits of quality coffee. This Konga natural blew me away. Dry fruit, berries, jasmin, and cocoa abound. This looks fairly lightly roasted which I think works very well here. I bought this as well as the Yirgacheffa Adulina washed to compare side by side. Both outstanding. Do yourself a favor and grab a bag.
