Cupping Evaluation

Cupping Details

Immediately upon smelling, the aromas of grapes, currants, nuts, and sweet dried fruits were intensely present. The body was round, full, juicy, and overall smooth. Tons of fruit acidity was easily identifiable, but it never seemed to overpower the cup due to the highly impactful sweetness. Notes of peach, plum, blackberry, orange, black currant, wildflower honey, and caramel all played very well together. Soft tannins, malts, and a touch of cinnamon created a highly complex and pleasing experience. As the coffee lingered, it brought back more malts and honey in a light glow.

Brewing Evaluation

Brewing Details

The aroma was enticing, with deep and sweet scents beckoning us to drink deeply. On the first sip a heavy and juicy body took over the palate, creating a rather decadent drinking experience. On the brighter side of acidity, fruity flavors showed up and ultimately transformed into a sweetness that reminded us of a rich mulled wine. This coffee was highlighted by intense sweetness and complexity, which kept us sipping. Little to no bitterness was present, and a long, rich aftertaste kept us satisfied. In three words we call this coffee - Full Bodied - Fruity - Baking Spices
