CUPPPING

The aroma is of licorice root, oak, soil, marionberry, hazelnut, coffee, cocoa powder, bell pepper, sun dried tomato, and kombu

This is a medium body that is thick with a syrupy feel and heavy

The acidity is a medium-low with a astringent ashy note that is dominating and makes you salivate as it is very dry and chalky

The flavor is of carbon, ash, black cardamom, oak, dutch process cocoa powder, black walnut, licorice root, burnt sugar, malic acid, tamarind wood, kombu, dragons blood, and tobacco

as it cools the a sweet not develops but not very notable just more of a burnt tartness instead

AREOPRESS

The aroma is mellower then cupped with more of a delicate earth tone and more herbaceous notes like of chia, dandelion and palm ponen

The body is watery with a slick juicy and dirty stickiness like of molasses

The acidity is is lingering, dirty, unbalanced and tart

Flavors of artichoke, carbon, soil, oak, black tea, black salt, dutch process cocoa powder, and hazelnut

I can not recommend this coffee on this of at all

The body is heavy with a smooth and velvety mouthfeel that lingers as a juicy coating

As it cools tart notes develop like of white grapefruit and green cactus pear. a back note of burnt caramel is there but very faint .

FELLOW DUO

The aroma is of dirty water, with black tea notes and soil with brown butter

The body is very week with a tea like consistency and watery mouth feel

The acidity is not that and has none

The flavors are of watery hot chocolate, cara cara orange pith, coconut water, blakberry, and green grape and marshmallow

I do not recommend this coffee on this brewing method

CHEMEX W/ Able Gold Series Kone Filter

The aroma is more of a berry forwor with notes of blueberry and strawberry anlong with hints of cherry blossom, notes of cream and myrrh have developed along with delicate hints of dried papaya

The body is also week with an underdeveloped mouth feel but does have a juicy and silky feel

The acidity is of weak black tea

The flavors of this method are of milk chocolate, blackberry, marshmallow, over ripe banana, and navel orange

I believe this coffee can be good on the chemex but depends on the filter you use
