It is hard not to expect fruity and berries flavors from natural Guji coffee. Guji Gerba coffee has caught me off guard with lilac flower and rambutan flavors. Definetely it is not something that I used from Guji coffee. I had to cup few times to be sure if really taste like what I thought. The flavors getting prominent as it cools down which help to solidify my taste bud that it really taste like rambutan. Guji Gerba also bring back herb/flowery taste which one of the Ethiopian classic flavor component. I prefer to use flat bottom dripper to bring out lilac, rambutan and grape juiciness at equal intensity. Use low brewing ratio if you prefer 'strong' flavors coffee.
