Cupping Evaluation

Cupping Details

This coffee is immediately fragrant, with dark chocolate, smoke, cloves, and baking spices blossoming in the cup. The body is medium-full and smooth in texture. Acidity is quite low in presence, though lightly malic and at times reminiscent of grape skins. Distinctly roast forward, this coffee surprises with a balancing sweetness of dark sugars, semisweet chocolate, and graham cracker. The bitter notes are well restrained showing smoke, hazelnut, black tea and tobacco in a complex manner. A tannic dryness lingers briefly before fading from the palate.

Brewing Evaluation

Brewing Details

As a brew Beachcomber opens up with an attractive aroma, pleasantly smoky and fruity. On first sip, a rich and juicy texture greets the tongue. It remains smooth throughout the cup, with a slight pop of vibrancy tingling the senses. There is a bittersweet balance that we really enjoy about this coffee. Simultaneously fruity, nutty, and spicy. There is a tingly sensation that stays in your mouth after each sip that reminds us of black tea. In three words - Balanced, Full-Bodied, and Smoky.
