Magic Bean Report #2 - Matambo

Coffee is just like wine - the fruit that gives it its beautiful flavour changes, grows and develops with the change in weather. In order to keep Mana's beautiful, fruity, smooth flavour with it's punchy chocolatey aftertase, we adjust our raw ingredient. A new mix of Colombian farmers has been able to give us our latest magic bean: Matambo!
