Cupping Evaluation

Cupping Details

Fruit forward, our first exposure to this coffee brings aromas of berry, peaches and bergamot tea. The body is juicy and smooth, medium in weight. Intense in its brightness, it comes through as mango, stone fruits and tart cherry. The candied sweetness is where it really shines with watermelon tones coming through. Complex, but low in bitterness, there are subtle hints of baking spices and nuts. In the aftertaste it fades cleanly, bright and tea-like.
