CUPPING

 

The aroma of this coffee is of raisin, bakers chocolate, soil, maple sap, caramel, blood orange, sandalwood, sumac, mirth, magnolia, and allspice 

This is a medium - low body coffee that is silkily and watery with a creamy and thick texture

This is medium acidity coffee that has a mild brightness and a delicate sour cream hint to it

The flavors of this coffee are of burnt caramel, soil, bakers chocolate, mirth, pomelo, magnolia, ponzu sauce, maple syrup, sweetened condensed milk, bosc pear, and sumac

As it cools this coffee changes completely to a rich creamy flavor like of vanilla and whipped cream with navel orange blossom and honey

 

CHEMEX

The aroma of the cup hazelnut, cocoa powder, bergamot stem, cane sugar, bosc pear, milling spice, muted coriander and soil

The body of this cup is weak and has the consistency of dirty water and nut skin

The acidity of this cup is much lighter then being cupped and is so delicate and mild that it is almost lost

The flavors of this cup are of hazelnut, cocoa powder, soil, magnolia, chervil, white pepper, Eurika lemon pith, and burnt caramel

 

FRENCH PRESS

The aroma of the cup is of bergamot stem, caramel, soil, white pepper, cinnamon, cumin, adobo, kafir lime leaf, and bottle brush

The body much fuller and creamy with a slick and dry finish

The acidity is brighter and has a more of a tart note that is dry and has an astringent muted juicy complexity

The flavors of this cup are of muted cinnamon, toasted cocoa nib, white grapefruit, curry, dragons blood, magnolia, clove, long pepper, bottle brush, rye, and ponzu sauce

Useing the French Press for this coffee is to me the bset option as it brings out more flevor and body to this coffee and makes it more compplex
