Cupping Evaluation

Cupping Details

The aromas are unmistakeably fruity as we break, inviting with its juicy citrus and lush berries. The body, smooth and creamy, remind us of a rich black tea. Winey throughout with rich berry and light citrus, it has a jammy, brown sugar sweetness that satisfies the palate. Balancing in, the bitterness is on the softer, 'tea-like' side laced with almond and delicate tannins. The finish starts off super sweet with a candied berry glow, softly lingering into a rich nuttiness.

Brewing Evaluation

Brewing Details

Alluring in its aroma, this coffee reels you in with smells of sweet berries and rich chocolate. The body is smooth, creamy and lush, dancing well with the balanced berry and dried fruit notes throughout. Sweetness of toffee candy bridges nicely to the lower tones of earthy chocolate. It all leaves you with a long wine-like linger, laced with tea and caramel. This coffee in three words: Berry - Earthy - Creamy
