CUPPING

 

The aroma of this coffee is of light brown sugar, basmati rice, graham cracker, turmeric, kombu, longon, white grape, green papaya, wheat, black cardamom, and ponzu

This is a medium - full body coffee that is smooth and creamy with a very slight rough finish but is still velvety throughout

This is a medium acidity coffee that is very juicy with a crisp complexity like caramel with tones of sweet citrus

 

The flavors of this coffee are of mole sauce, toasted graham cracker, kombu, longon, green papaya, ponzu, wheat, black cardamom, raw cocoa bean, vanillin, tahini, wheat, bosc pear, puffed brown rice, creme fraiche, grilled pineapple, and burnt brown sugar

As it cools notes of tobacco infused milk develop along with white grape, oak, and basmati rice

 

 

AEROPRESS

The aroma of the cup purple bell pepper, black cardamom, molasses, cocoa nib, rubbed sage, tamarind, sapote, burnt tomato paste, Italian, oregano, and nori

The body is weak with a juicy and slick mouthfeel that is dirty and rough like sand on the top of your mouth

This cups acidity is very high with a bug forward punch of tartness that quickly follows by a lingering dirty taste that is dry like of chalk 

The flavors of this cup are of tamarind, smoked paprika, white pepper, Mexican oregano, nori, raw cocoa bean, carbon, burnt almond, burnt brown sugar, ginger powder, rubbed sage, sapote, and grilled black cherry

I would not recomend this coffee on this every!!! This coffee is to delacte for this and brings out to much of the oils along with a bad body and very high acidity. If you want coffee in a hurry use another method then this!!!
 

FRENCH PRESS

The aroma of the cup is of black cardamom, graham cracker, ponzu, kombu, baked black grape, wheat, vanillin, bosc pear, cocoa nib, and puffed brown rice

This is full body cup with a smooth velvety texture that is more on the herbaceous feel 

The acidity is high with a tart forward that lingers finishing to a dirty astringent taste

The flavors of this cup are of dried chervil , turmeric, kombu, black cardamon, burnt graham cracker, soil, blood orange, wheat, tobacco, aged oak, ponzu, baked bosc pear, Mexican oregano, and black cherry

Useing the French Press brings out unique flavors and a much high acidity that is plesent but I would noy like to have more the one cup of this coffee like this
