Cupping Evaluation

Cupping Details

The nose tempts us in with complex sweetness of dried berries, almonds and malty tobacco. The body follows suit with a heavy juiciness that coats the mouth a bit like hot chocolate. Getting into the flavors of the cup we taste sweet lemons with bright cherry and a hint of tomato, balanced in part with low toned maple and light caramel. Dark chocolate, leather and that almond nuttiness roung out the cup, leading to a lingering tannic afterglow.

Brewing Evaluation

Brewing Details

Deep sweetness like maple brown sugar reigns in the aroma of this coffee, followed by a medium body that's smooth, round and juicy. In the mug the flavor experience is a delicate balance between soft citrus fruits and deep, yet clean, sugarcane sweetness. Complexity shows up most articulately in the low tones of cashews, black tea and hints of earth. The finish is really pleasant, lingering softly with dark chocolate and hints of raisin.
