MUNCHIE: Colombia Anaerobic Honey
Munchie has a dessert-like aroma that reminds us of strawberry cheesecake. In the cup, you can expect a good balance of tropical fruit acidity and creamy sweetness wrapped into a velvety smooth mouthfeel.
While Munchie works well with both espresso and filter, it is one of the most unique and memorable milk-based espresso coffees we've ever come across. With milk and alt-milk, it's basically dessert in the form of coffee.
Tasting Notes: Pineapple, Coconut, Strawberry Cheesecake, Vanilla, Caramel
Cup score: 88.25 ☕
Munchie is the fourth coffee we've released as part of our Loco Series, which celebrates the crazy coffees coming out of Colombia this year.
