    Roaster’s Notes
    A beautiful lot from the famed "Misty Valley", named for the humidity that settles into the area at night. The microclimate combined with heirloom varieties, expert farming and milling is responsible for coffees long considered a benchmark for beauty and complexity in coffee—known for being alluringly complex and jasmine-like when fully washed, and seductively punchy and sweet when sundried--this lot is both of those things, and a fantastic example.
