Drop Coffee – Limoncillo

It was a very long time ago that I reviewed Drop Coffee on Kaffenytt so I thought to myself that it’s time again to do it. After browsing for a while I found a Nicaraguan coffee from them that hade notes of flavor that sounded very much like something I would love to have in my hand at the moment. I mean doesn’t this sound amazing?

“The coffee has a toffee like arome, with flavour notes of roasted hazelnuts, red apple and milk chocolate and a lingering finish of cacao nibs. This coffee makes a sweet and steady cup wuith medium mouthfeel.”

I loved to brew it at a high temperature and also mixing with the length of the bloom. There’s no rules here so just rebel with the ratios and traditional recipes to find a golden nugget. Which I felt that I did with this coffee.

Limoncillo Review:

A fresh coffee to be honest, it’s very crispy and worked as best as a cold brew for me, it’s super flavorful with the most ice you could fit in a glass. I really enjoyed this one and it was one of their more budgetfriendly bags of coffee actually!
