There is a story behind this fabulous coffee!  A very nice lady was visiting the UK and brought back this Peruvian Sunipani ground coffee to Advanced Knee Care knowing that it would be able to find its way to my doorstep.  Now that is something to talk about!!!  It arrived a couple days later via UPS and I was waiting patiently.  Thanks for reading my blog, Jane, and thank you for the super duper coffee!!!!

The ground coffee was vacuum sealed with a valve and when I opened the bag I was not overpowered by the fragrance.  It had a very pleasant and inviting mild aroma.  The brewed coffee itself was really very, very good.  I made it on the strong side and enjoyed the complex flavors of savory notes along with a berry like finish.  It is well-balanced as no single flavor characteristic dominates or overwhelms the other.  The coffee has lots of depth and would be especially nice to have in the morning as the acidity is mild, but the essence is strong.  This is a pure origin coffee and comes from south eastern Peru.  Awesome!

Overall score:  8+
