The Big Squeeze

(1 customer review)

From: $18.50

Single Origin Coffee – Gashura WS, Rwanda


SKU: N/A Category:


The Big Squeeze is the juiciest coffee you’ll have. The cup explodes with distinct notes of grape – but more like preserves and jam, less like wine – with hints of apricot and honey sweetness. This is the kind of coffee that Springtime dreams are made of. Perfect for your chilly April morning when you want to sip a hot cup on your porch, but just as great when the tangy, fruity notes are poured over ice.

    Excellent – smooth, subtle honey flavor when served hot. It reminds me quite a bit of the Easy Drinker with how smooth it is to sip, but its got more fruity flavor than the ED.

      Thanks for enjoying! We absolutely love fruit-forward coffees in the Summertime!
