CUPPING

The aroma of this coffee is of cocoa nib, dried raspberry, lilac, honeydew, Meyer lemon, rosehip, citron, honey, leather, allspice, white sage, licorice root, green pineapple, and black cardamom

This is a medium body coffee that is smooth with a heavy cream note that is velvety and thick

This is a mild acidity coffee that is slightly tart with a muted and dirty cities taste

The flavors of this coffee are of yellow pineapple, Crenshaw melon, white cranberry, allspice, white sage, licorice root, prickly pear, soil, bakers chocolate, caracara orange, noni, balsamic vinegar, black cardamom

As it cools notes of Tahitian vanilla and cream develop along with  blood orange and burro banana 

 

FRENCH PRESS

The aroma of the cup red grape, leather, chamomile, black tea, allspice, oak, and burnt tomato paste

The body is very weak and watery with no depth but there is a slight lacey note at the back

The acidity is mellow with a forward sharp note with a dirty finish 

The flavors of this method are of red grape, noni, yellow pineapple, Crenshaw melon, white cranberry, goat milk, green olive, mushroom, tahini, and sumac

I would use this method  if our wanting a natural coffee for a meat centered meal

 

GINO

The aroma of the cup saffron, sumac, white sage, sandalwood, lilac, licorice root, malt, toasted almond and dried pineapple

The body is weak and has a dirty water and tobacco consistency

The acidity is around the same as being cupped

The flavors of the cup are of black cardamom, soil, tobacco, sumac, burnt almond, licorice root, fried plantain, nori, soy sauce, carbon, and magnolia

I do not recommend  this coffee on the gino :( it is my go to method but this coffee does not improve it does not show this coffee how it should nor brings anything to it
