CUPPING

The aroma of this coffee is of  maple, ponzu, dark chocolate, molasses, almond, snow pea, damp soil, malt vinegar, coriander

This is a medium body coffee that is rich and deep with dry rough texture through out

This is a high acidity coffee that is unbalanced, dirty, with a muted complexity and a sharp tart note

Flavor 

The flavors of this coffee are of ash, carbon, soil, black cardamom, malt vinegar, raw cashew, burnt plantain, and ash

As it cools a subtle hint of bakers chocolate develops but the coffee is still dry, and has the taste of order roasting and over fermentation 

 

GINO

The aroma of the cup is of buckwheat, letter, toffee, malt, pumpernickel bread, vanillin, and Bosk pear

The flavor of the coffee is of caramel, bitter sweet chocolate, damp soil, black current, maple, ponzu, ash, and raw almond

The acidity is much like the cupping but dryer and has a chalky after taste

The body is smooth with a slight juicy mouth feel but is still dry and rough

 

THIS IS PROBABLY THE WOST COFFEE I HAVE HAD OF THE YEAR
