Cupping Evaluation

Cupping Details

Sunflower nuts, cooked carrots, and caramel dominate the nose, followed by a round and refreshing body that is smooth and light to medium in weight. A low intensity acid shines with apricot, grapefruit, mango, and tomato. Sweet fruit juice and demerara sugar create a strong foundation for the flavor structure. There is a slight tea-like tannin, cocoa, and roasty malt in the background creating multiple levels of complexity. This coffee leaves you with milk chocolate, almond, and a squeaky clean finish.

Brewing Evaluation

Brewing Details

The aromas of butter caramel and graham cracker lead to a pillowy and soft texture, with a light and tea-like body. A low intensity acidity shows itself as sparkling bright red apples and cider. Honey, graham, and fructose help create structure to the cup and lightly dry cocoa and cinnamon add to the clean finish with hazelnuts and dark chocolate.
