Pomegranate, Physalis, Cacao, Sweet
In Suaheli, Impano means ‘gift’. And we have to say: A cup of this coffee is truly a gift for any filter lover. It has both a freshness that is reminiscent of a juicy pomegranate and a bitterness that is reminding of dark chocolate – brought about by its super-long fermentation. A very unique characteristic. It also has plenty of sweetness, making it a very special cup.
