Tasting Notes: Spice, Brown Sugar, Sweet Lime
What a lovely smelling coffee Kazoza N'Ikawa is! It has a sugar browning sweetness along with a mix of spice and citrus accent notes. The wetted grounds are so caramely sweet with a hint of cinnamon tea. A compromise is often made when light roasting, trading out developed sweetness for acidity and complexity. But this isn't the case with Kazoza N'Ikawa, and the cooling cup has a sweetness like sugarcane juice...that, along with hints of raisin and allspice that resonate in the aroma and aftertaste. Acidity pops too, with fruit juicy-like sweetness akin to sweet limes (if you haven't had them, they produce all the lime flavor without a puckering level of tartness!). Kazoza N'Ikawa is so sweet and complex that those patient enough to let it cool will be duly rewarded.
