Cupping Evaluation

Cupping Details

Highly aromatic, with notes of peach, nectarine, orange, and dark caramel, this coffee delivers all around. Full bodied, round, coating, and clean textures allow the flavors to shine without distractions. In the acidity, cara cara orange, peach, pear, and nectarine glow on the palate without overwhelming. Dynamically sweet, this coffee delivers fresh fruit nectar and rich caramel in copious amounts. Almost no bitterness is present, but complex cola, grains, and tannins show themselves, and calm down into a long lingering smooth chocolate fudge. An impressive cup profile.

Brewing Evaluation

Brewing Details

This coffee was one of the best brewed cups we have tasted. Sweet, fruity aromatics were distinct and enticing. The body delivered a smooth, clean, and lush mouth-feel. The acidity was distinct, but balanced. Fruit like acids and citrus were countered by a highly sweet presence that reminded us of candy. Virtually no bitterness delivered an impressively drinkable cup that lingered long after each sip with a sweet toffee reminiscence. In three words we call this coffee - Balanced, Sweet, and Clean
