Cupping Evaluation

Cupping Details

Scents of baking bread and herbs fill the nose of this coffee, leading into medium smooth body. While balanced the acidity is reigned in, tasting of pears in caramel. Sweetness like dates and brown sugar rests on low tones of almond and cocoa. The aftertaste is soft, leaving light chocolate and a low glow of pear.

Brewing Evaluation

Brewing Details

Light and floral, Fast Forward begins with aromas of vanilla and spices. The body is smooth and creamy, yet crisp and refreshing. Subtle yet lively, its crisp acidity leads into sweetness of fresh fruit and pecans. In its depth, this is the coffee equivalent of drinking sweet peanut butter. It ends with hints of dryness, nuttiness still lingering but clean. This coffee is Nutty, Creamy & Clean.
