Printable coffee reviews
We've received a lot of requests for a bare-bones version of coffee reviews that will print well for roast logs and the like.
Since everyone uses the reviews differently, we decided to make a format where you can choose which fields you'd like to print. As you check and uncheck the boxes below,
fields will appear and disappear to preview roughly what the page will look like when printed (use your browser's "print preview" feature for a more accurate preview). Once you've selected the
fields you want, hit the "Print this Review" button to make this header text disappear and print the page. We're planning on adding the ability to
put multiple reviews on a page soon, but hopefully this will get you started.
Ethiopia Goma Duromina Cooperative
Duromina is a sweet, delicate and well-structured cup, totally different from the typical dry-process Jimma coffees. The fragrance from the dry grounds has stone fruit (peach, apricot) and honey. As I add the hot water, there is intensely sweet smell of apricot preserves, jammy, with floral scents as well. The wet aroma is floral, peach tree in bloom, almond extract, a hint of cherry (City+ roast). The cup has very refined flavor characteristics, not a "big" coffee, but a restrained and articulate one. My lightest roast (City) have amazing fruit juice sweetness, clean berry notes, peach essence, lightly caramelized sugars, sweet grain. With a little more roast (City+), floral and fruit flavors intensify, and the ripeness of the berry notes comes to the forefront. At Full City the chocolate starts to dominate. The body is relatively light, complimenting the cleanly disappearing sweetness and fruit jam flavors. This is a coffee that intensifies greatly as it cools, so to truly appreciate it, focus on the taste as the cup loses temperature. This coffee is wonderful as SO espresso. Aleco tried a shot of this and proclaimed it the best SO espresso he's ever had!
