Cameroon Boyo: Cush Coffee
The first thing I noticed was the amount of oil present on the beans. From first opening the bag, to pouring the ground coffee into the press, this Cameroon Boyo had strong aroma notes of chocolate and coffee.

Once the coffee had steeped and was cupped, there was a nice oily sheen floating on top. With the first few sips I could tastes flavor notes of sweet fruit, semi sweet chocolate and wood. The body was light and brisk with a clean semi sweet finish.

With the second cup from the press the woody flavor notes were stronger and the finish left a slightly acid aftertaste on my palate, but the underlying sweetness remained.

Next I would like to try this coffee with a full bodied Corojo wrapped cigar to see how the flavors highlight each other.

This Cameroon Boyo was another quality coffee roasted by Cush Coffee.
