Cupping Evaluation

Cupping Details

Peanut butter and cocoa mark the aroma at the break, leading into a full, rich and smooth body. Juicy and herbaceous, we taste mild fruits and garden veggies. The sweetness is reminiscent of cooked carrots, brown sugar and sweet malts. The complexity and bitterness has a range from peanut to cocoa and cereal to cedar, rolling into a short-lived finish of cedar and nutty dark chocolate.

Brewing Evaluation

Brewing Details

Caramel and herbs greet us in the nose of this brew as well as malty sweet chocolate. The body is medium in weight, but velvety and smooth. The acidity is quite mild, but tastes of citrus fruits leading into a malty sweetness with hints of light caramel. Nutty and earthy, we find the complexity of herbs weaving in and out of the flavor. The finish is long, but mellow and chocolatey. This coffee is dest described as- Nutty - Medium Body - Earthy
