Fullstrong Coffee- “Fortaleza”

After a week off, I’m back, y’all! This week, I’m sampling a coffee from all the way across the country. That’s right, we’re talking Nova Scotia. Being that this was my first coffee from the east coast of Canada, it goes without saying that I was excited to dig into this one.

In terms of aroma, I found that this roast had a certain spice to it, perhaps something along the lines of nutmeg. There were also rich dark chocolate notes that added a little sweet and a touch of bitter to the coffee. Taste-wise, I found a lot of different notes in this roast that, on the surface, might seem a little discombobulated, but they all work together. First, I got a hit of licorice which was quite unique. In addition to this, I also got the spiciness that I first detected in the aroma, that kind of stuck around throughout. This was followed by a smooth, caramel-like finish that really helped to mellow everything out. Overall, I found that this roast had great staying power and, like I said earlier, there were lots of different elements in this coffee, but they all work quite well together. Kudos to you, Fullstrong Coffee!
