Cupping Evaluation

Cupping Details

Sweet and fruity throughout the experience, the aroma opens with brown sugar, berries and caramel. The body is full, creamy and pretty smooth. Getting into the flavor part of the experience, it opens with sweet red grapefruit that transforms into plum and tropical fruit as it cools. The sweetness is rich, filled with brown sugar, malt and dried fruit, balanced alongside cacao, dark chocolate and a slightly drying winey afterglow.

Brewing Evaluation

Brewing Details

Mild in aroma, the Las Margaritas opens with some light brown sugar and fruit. First sips reveal a full and juicy body that's round and smooth. Overall this coffee offers a lot of balance with sweet, juicy stonefruit and lively citrus intertwining with clean maple sweetness and low toned dark chocolate bitterness. As it fades off the palate, we taste nutty chocolate and a light winey glow. This coffee is Balanced - Full Body - Fruity

Roaster Profile

Water Avenue Coffee

Seizing the moment in 2009, WAC purchased a vintage, French-built 1974 Samiac roaster from a company in Switzerland, and set about building a new business around it. Having dozens of years experience in training and consulting in the specialty coffee industry, Bruce and Matt saw a great opportunity also to develop and showcase a retail and roasting business in same building as the American Barista & Coffee School, and share with new Water Avenue Coffee customers, the decades of combined experience to offer an unsurpassed level of support.
