Cameroon Boyo Coffee
Well, if you read my Volcanica Coffee Reviews, you know that I have yet to find one I do not like. Cameroon Boyo is no different! This is a very smooth coffee with very distinct flavors. I must admit though, I did not like this at first sip. In my opinion, Cameroon Boyo may definitely be an acquired taste for some, as it was for me.
What Makes Cameroon Boyo Coffee Taste So Good?
First and foremost, Cameroon Boyo Coffee is farmed in a single field on a single farm, hence why it is called “single origin micro lot” coffee. It is also farmed on a family owned estate with which they take great care in hand picking and harvesting the coffee bean on a specific day, to ensure it is at its ripest, and also to ensure the best quality coffee. Single origin coffees grown on estate micro lots are known for some of the best quality of specialty coffees you can find today. This care and consideration in harvesting is very eminent in a cup of Cameroon Boyo coffee.
The flavors are ever so present in the aroma even before you grind your beans, and when I took my first sip, all I could taste was the stone fruit. Personally, I do not like fruit flavors since they are usually very bold and “in your face”, can easily dominate the other flavors, and then all you really end up tasting is the fruit. This was my initial impression of this coffee, and then it grew on me.
As I continued to drink my Cameroon Boyo Coffee that morning, and the following day, and the day after that, I realized that I was really starting to like this coffee. Now I appreciate the stone fruit taste, and though it is still very present, I do not think it is as overpowering of the other flavors as before. You can still taste the chocolate and caramel flavors, but they are more so in the after-taste of the coffee, rather than when the coffee is on your pallet. The combination of chocolate and caramel always add a touch of that rich and creamy mouthfeel that we love about a great cup of coffee.
The stone fruit flavor tastes like it could be a peach, nectarine, or maybe a mango. I’ll let you be the judge yourself, as it does not specifically say what kind of stone fruit was used in the processing of the coffee bean. For me, I taste peach.
