Cupping Evaluation

Cupping Details

As the crust breaks, we are met with sweet aromas of honey, brown sugar and sweet grains. The creamy body carries with it a pop of acidity like juicy mango and lemon drops. Intense at first and then quickly fades to settle into a candied baked apple sweetness. Low in bitter tones, this coffee has traces of dark chocolate and cashews. It finishes off with a juicy citrusy linger, a little dry and sticky.

Brewing Evaluation

Brewing Details

Pleasing at first sniff, the coffee smells delicately sweet- malty brown sugar and soft spices. The first flavor to appear in this mild bodied brew is a honeyed pear. Malic and round, the sweetness is fairly subdued. Honey shifts into dry baking spices. In the finish slightly sour tannic notes are reminiscent of a spicy merlot with a drying sensation at the back of the tongue. This coffee is bright, nutty, and mild.
