You know that feeling when you stumble upon a hidden treasure? Honey Raid is like finding a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. I mean, you can actually see the gleam of the thin candied honey shell on the beans. The shell shattered during grinding, leaving no gummy residue. My wife and I anxiously awaited the brewing to finish while enjoying the unique and complex aroma. We drink our coffee black and were finally met with a smooth, rich flavor with just the slightest hint of sweetness. It's coffee perfection, and now I can't wait to try the other roasts!
