aromatique (flying squirrel coffee)
Mild sweetness reminiscent of fruit and berries with a touch of mellow caramel and an almost wine-like rounded acidity. Aromatique is a select Arabica single estate coffee, naturally processed. Handpicked beans undergo a very mild fermentation to create this highly sophisticated coffee, rich in aroma and presence.
packaging: beautiful brown paper packaging that i have come to love on my coffee journey. the pack seals tight. (i ordered the taster’s pack and got some coffee packs with the printed logo and some without)
fragrance: i was surprised to learn this was a light roast. the coffee has a fragrance that is typical of a strong coffee or a deeper roast.
aroma: the coffee has a rich rounded aroma that doesnt overpower!
acidity: aromatique is acidic. it’s mildly astringent tasting.
body: aromatique has a rich body that is well balanced. it’s not delicate but makes for a strong punchy cuppa.
texture: the texture is not exactly winey. it’s more acidic than fruity/sweet
flavor: aromatique from flying squirrel is tart with the mildest hint of sweet/sour
aftertaste: coats the tongue. has a mildly astringent aftertaste that i did not enjoy
the verdict: it was not to my liking, but those who wish for a punchy, rich coffee in the morning can definitely give Aromatique a try.
