Cupping Evaluation

Cupping Details

Sweet and fruity in the nose, we smell apple cider, rich berries and hints of bright grapes. The full and heavy body is laced with hints of dryness. The flavor offers variety, from grapefruit and baked berries to milk chocolate to cedar. From brown sugar sweetness to smoked nuts, this coffee has a lot going on in it. The finish lingers long, starting with raisin and dark chocolate fading to a nutty dryness.

Brewing Evaluation

Brewing Details

As a brew the aroma is a pretty straightforward smoky dark caramel. Getting into the cup we find it creamy at first with a twist of dryness coming in as we go. The flavor range is pretty broad as we sip, from fruity berry tones to and earthy nuttiness, with some mild dark caramel sweetness in between. As it fades we find a smoky dark chocolate lingering with a dark nutty dryness. This coffee is- Fruity - Dry - Nutty
