Let Mariam tour you around the beautiful flavors that you’ll experience in our collaborative masterpiece. During her 2021 World Brewers Cup Competition Routine in Milan, the coffee she presented was grown in the Chiriqui Region, known for quality, sustainability and scientific rationality. Its micro climate results in overwhelming flavors of fruitiness, vibrant acidity, and balance of very clean juicy sweetness.
"Each kettle colors on my routine reflects the flavors of the coffee that I presented.”
"In aroma while at its hottest, you’ll find sweet palm sugar, lemon and white grapes, and my favorite part of this exciting masterpiece will be the layers of flavors that reminds me of a colorful artwork. When my coffee is hot, in flavors you will find peach, and palm sugar that reminds me of yellow and orange colors." - Mariam
"When it gets warm, it’s red as hibiscus and purple as grapes." - Mariam
"As it cools down, you’ll have that light green of lychee and white grapes, going to the aftertaste when it becomes hot and warm. Long finish of grapes juice and the aftertaste as its cools down, pineapple and peach will remain." - Mariam
