Cupping Notes
The dry grinds let off a smell of dark maple sugar andåÊnotes of date. There are allusions to florals, but they do not dominate. The dark, raw sugar smell builds quite a bit in the wet aromatics, and there's a bit of molasses too. As brewed coffee, this one's complex with layered sweetness, fruit, and an ultra clean finish. Lighter roasts have a honeyed flavor to them, and the acidity is lively and defined. There's a bit of citrus for sure, and a nice herbal tea-like flavor. As this coffee cools, it builds in complexity with notes of raisin, clove, and date sugar emerging. A bit of jasmine too, most expressed in the middle and finish - and actually, the floral element in the finish reminds me of rice candy. This one's not particularly bodied, and maybe best as a brewed coffee and not as espresso. But if you're like us, any dark roasts will find their way into our espresso machine at some point or another we'll keep you posted.
