It’s been a while since I’ve had a Colombian coffee, so this was a nice treat! This was also my first time trying a coffee from Modus- a roaster that has been on my list for quite some time. Thanks to Brew Perfect Box for including this in your November edition (I can’t believe we’re almost through November already!). Anyway, right off the bat, I noticed the sweet smell this roast was giving off. Coupled with that, it also appeared to be on the lighter side of the roast spectrum. In terms of taste, the orange notes really come through- they are impressively vibrant. Additionally, the orange mixes well with the chocolate notes that unfold further on in the experience, especially on the back end, that;s when you really get a kick of the chocolate. At this point, you might be thinking of one of those chocolate oranges and the heaviness associated with them, but this coffee skirts around this issue. While it does have a notably similar taste, it also has a very clean, light finish to it. This makes me want to keep coming back to this roast again and again. Thanks for a great first experience, Modus!
