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.
Rwanda Karenge Coffee Villages
The dry fragrance is sweet with butter caramel candy, a hint of banana, molasses, fresh-baked brown bread. In the wet aromatics there is intense dark malt sugar notes, plum, pungent spice and in the lighter roast a sage blossom honey. The cup has a structured brightness in the cup, also with an 'orange and spice' character, with black tea-like bittering in the finish. As it cools the cup opens up to a new set of flavors; black cherry and baked apple, cola, caramel, cranberry. This coffee turns noticeably sweeter with a little more roast. I felt that City roast was rather austere, minimal, spare, and the brightness quite tart. City+ roast, with more development after 1st crack highlights more of the honey-vanilla character and the brightness seems more integrated. Full City was wonderful of course too! The cup is really dynamic, clean, pointedly bright, and seems to improve even more with several days rest after roasting.
