To be honest we love natural processed coffees at Kai. That said, we were looking for an amazing washed coffee to balance out our offering list and to showcase something special from a unique origin... Then we found Los Tolas in Ecuador. It is an incredibly well rounded, sweet and complex coffee. You can drink it as a straight espresso and walk away with this dark chocolate experience with a slight lemon acidity. Add some milk and and the flavour just keeps going deeper revealing berry undertones with hints of caramel. Enjoy this one because there are only a few hundred kilos in the country (we bought them all) and its going fast!
