Cupping Evaluation

Cupping Details

Warm and inviting, the initial smells during steep are reminiscent of cinnamon toast. On break it unfolds into ripe fruits, caramel and honey. The body, full and smooth, rounds out into juiciness. Bright and sweet, it opens to sweet meyer lemons and strawberries, laced with hints of bergamot. Sweet and cider, grape jam comes to mind. Grounding these flavors are deep cocoa tones and orange peel. Mostly clean, winey tones round out the finish.

Brewing Evaluation

Brewing Details

Juicy fruits hit the nose first, a blossoming of complex fruit tones. Passion fruit, black currant and purple grapes come to mind. Full and round, the body is lush- almost sparkling at times. Stone fruits and succulent mango come into play, but in a sweet balance with light caramel and raw sugar. All of it rides on rich tones of black tea, rounding out with a soft tannic finish. This coffee is a dynamically balanced experience.
