Cupping Evaluation

Cupping Details

Intensely fruity in the nose, with raspberry and strawberry being strong components. Ripe red fruits and dark chocolate are a theme for this coffee. The body is quite smooth and creamy, feeling medium to light in weight. The acidity shows restraint with sweet red and purple fruits, strawberry and cherry being dominant flavors. The sweetness is high note cane sugar and fructose, balanced by dark chocolate and hints of nuts. The finish lingers with more fresh fruits, cocoa, and raisin. A quality take on a rather popular ripe natural.

Brewing Evaluation

Brewing Details

As a brew, this coffee displays sweet and fruity aromas reminiscent of a fruit flavored Tootsie Roll. Texturally it is smooth, round, and juicy on the tongue. When you taste, this coffee has a short brightness on the tip of the tongue, followed by a sweetness like brown sugar that adds depth. The cup is balanced by a low chocolatey bitterness which lingers on the palate in the finish. In 3 words we call this coffee: Berry - Chocolatey - Smooth
