Cupping Evaluation

Cupping Details

Aromas are pretty complex on this Brazil, bringing sweet praline, brown sugar, caramel and hints of citrus. The body is medium to full and very round and creamy, coating the palate. Soft in acidity, it carries a complex range of fruits from citrus to grape to berry. Sweetness is articulate in the cup, coming with brown sugar, candied pecan and a rich dark chocolate. The deepest tones remind us of fudgey cocoa, cinnamon and carry a smokey nuttiness well into the long finish.

Brewing Evaluation

Brewing Details

In the cup the scents draw us in with sweet brown sugar and hints of citrus. The first sips bring a smooth, creamy body that refreshes the palate. While mild, the acidity comes in low tones of dark citrus and tannic dried fruits, marrying well with a deep caramelized sweetness. The lowest range of flavors go from cola to cocoa with hints of baking spices. The finish is long with a little tingle, fading off with cocoa and nutty notes. This coffee is best described as Sweet- Smooth - Chocolatey
