Cupping Evaluation

Cupping Details

Toffee is noticeable in the aroma, with savory elements throughout. The body is syrupy and heavy, coating the palate in a sticky manner. There is a bright pop of acid with tart lemon and orange that fades away slowly. The sweetness is reminiscent of roasted vegetable and light cane sugar. The bitterness comes in toward the end as light tannic astringency. This coffee finishes mostly clean with candied pecans and sweet garden peas.

Brewing Evaluation

Brewing Details

Wildflower honey and chocolate give a fragrant introduction to this coffee. The body is smooth and juicy with a lively presence on the tongue, and overall medium in weight. The acidity is tangy and tart in presence with clementine and cranberry creating a pop of flavor immediately. A subtle sweetness of honey helps support the bright flavors in the cup, and hints of melon with a distinct black tea tannin finish out the experience.
