Cupping Evaluation

Cupping Details

Slightly subdued in its aroma, we catch rich scents of dates and cola laced with flowers and earth. Medium with a silky body, it's mostly lush and round with a hint of dryness. The flavor opens clean and citric, with ruby red grapefruit and sweet apple. Sweetness is the star of the show with rich dates, chocolate and brown sugar. All of these flavors are supported by complex bitterness of cocoa and cedar notes. It lingers sweet and clean with dark caramel and oak as it fades.

Brewing Evaluation

Brewing Details

Intriguing from the first whiff, this coffee tempts us with chocolate nuttiness and hints of earth. Juicy, it's medium body is smooth on the palate. Mellow citrus notes play amidst a clean cane sugar sweetness that is straightforward and pleasing. Balanced by chocolate and a complex nuttiness, this coffee's last impressions are clean and juicy with hints of nut butter. Our three words are Mellow, Citrus and Clean.
