Son of a Gun is the wild one of the bunch and takes aim at the current trend of lightly roasted coffee. It’s dark, slightly smoky flavour with hints of tobacco and rich milk chocolate will grab you by the scruff of the neck and not let go. If you make it through this one without being hog-tied and dragged through the streets, you’ve done well.
Smooth, dark, smoky, nutty, semi-sweet chocolate, orange peel, lemon zest, bitter grapefruit.
