CUPPING

The aroma of the coffee is of dark chocolate, date, light brown sugar, all spice, leather, hickory, toasted almond, dried yellow pineapple, ground beef, lemon grass, & pink salt

This is a full body coffee that is smooth with a deep and rich creamy texture throughout

This is a high acidity coffee that is bright and tart like of cranberry with a sharp forward that lingers 

 

The flavors of this coffee are of grilled yellow pineapple, liquid smoke, blackberry, soy sauce, toasted walnut, date, yellow nectarine, dark chocolate, baked date, light brown sugar, soil, prune, and kumquat marmalade 

As it cools notes of the pineapple develop more along with a tart cream note and a hint of a clay note

 

FRENCH PRESS

The aroma of the cup is of earl gray tea, bakers chocolate, soil, tamarind, light brown sugar, plum, muted passion fruit, yellow pineapple jam, rhubarb, and loquat

The acidity has dropped and is more of a delicate floral and is balanced 

The body is still full and rich with a smooth texture and a slight sticky note

The flavors of the cup are of bakers chocolate, lilac, soil, muted cinnamon, marionberry, tamarind, plum, loquat, bottle brush, dried yellow pineapple, all spice, steel, vanillin, almond flower and hickory

I highly recomend useing the French Press on this coffee to bring out the more delicate and fruity notes aalong with createing a much smoother body
