Vibrant fruity and lemongrass aroma. We get honey sweetness, which rolls throughout the flavour delivery. There is a boozy liqueur note here but it's delicate overall with lots to look for and find in the flavour. Complex and interesting. Good length, soft with a clean finish.
Los Pozos is Great Taste Award winner that is ethically sourced, and fully traceable. Los Pozos is a sustainable Carbon-Negative coffee, so you can feel good about a healthier, happier planet with GOOD LIFE.
Los Pozos is always shipped on the day it's roasted and delivered first-class to guarantee you the freshest flavour possible.
