Cupping Evaluation

Cupping Details

Rich and lush on the table, this coffee opens with scents of black currant, sweet tomato and fresh apricots. Full, round and as smooth as you could ask for, the body has a mouthwatering effect surrounding the juicy stone fruit flavors. Lush sweets come through like a fresh peach with honey, followed by soft tannins, nutmeg and a hint of savory herbs round out the experience. When all is said and done it lingers with a winey tannic glow, laced with cocoa and herbs.

Brewing Evaluation

Brewing Details

Complex right out of the gate, the aroma presents stone fruit, caramel and florals mixed with baking spice. The body is full, round and juic, harmonizing nicely with its bright, snappy citrus. The sweetness brings to mind light fruit with a drizzle of caramel. Rich in depth, we find a wide ranged flavor balance anchored by cocoa, nuts and hints of floral baking spices.
