CUPPING

Notes 

The beans have the fragrance of strawberry, peach, basmati rice, lilac, yeast, coca powder, orange blossom, loquat, sun mellon, chervil, dried blueberry, goji, oat, baking soda, raspberry, yogurt and papaya

The grounds have the fragrance of cream, golden raisin, pine sap, pecan, green papaya, rice wine, oat, goji, grilled yellow peach, musk, lilac, cherry wood, blood orange, loquat, and lard 

The aroma of this coffee is of bakers chocolate, pine sap, oat, lilac, baked strawberry, goji, chervil, blood orange, strawberry papaya, cashew, bing cherry, and peach blossom

This is a full body coffee that has a velvety mouth fell and a effervescent syrupy texture that is heavy

This is a high acidity that is bright with a strong tart forward that is structured, complex, and very juicy

 

The flavors of this coffee are of strawberry, cream of tarter, cocoa nib, bergamot, white grapefruit zest, white cranberry, noni, star fruit, loquat, blood orange, soy sauce, sun dried tomato, ponzu, and thyme

As it cools notes of cream, and bergamot are prominent with subtle notes of white cranberry and yellow raspberry develop 

GINO

The aroma of the cup is very herbaceous with notes of chervil, mustard seed, and chia along with earthy tones of grilled portabella mushroom, black walnut, and soy sauce

The flavors of the cup are of dark chocolate, black apple, plum, freeze dried strawberry, hay, chia, crimson raisin, and ponzu

The body is medium with a creamy texture and a tea like consistency. The acidity is medium with a dirty tartness that is very juicy

I would not recommend making this coffee on the Gino, It does not bring out anything complex out just earth tones

FRENCH PRESS

The aroma of this cup is delicate with notes of lilac, cherry blossom, roasted date, king mushroom, tannin, cork, damp cedar, soil, freeze dries strawberry, and mission fig

The flavors of the cup are of blood orange, strawberry, coriander, lemon zest, black tea, cedar, noni, goji, pluot, and pomegranate 

Using the french press the acidity is lowered and brings out a great body that is still heavy but not as strong as cupping

This is a very great way to enjoy this coffee to bring out the citrus and berry notes.
