Amparo packs a punch. The rich fruit tones hit like a bold brass band blasting salsa melodies, so those looking for a cup full of flavor will not be disappointed. I reserved this for my afternoon pick-me-up, brewing with an Aeropress and adding a dash of cream to round out the fruity notes. Suggested for those who like to live with flair.
