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.
This coffee's fragrance is potent, with dynamic sweetness and brightness. The dry grounds show dark honey and are pleasantly spiced with whole clove and cinnamon sticks. There's even a slight floral note in the lighter roasts that is like chamomile tea. Adding hot water really boosts the sweetness in this coffee's aromatic profile. Muscovado sugar is the first element that comes to mind - unrefined and molasses-like. Our dark roasts hint at herbal qualities that you might expect from coffees of this region, but these less than dominate. This coffee is light in body, and fairly complex in character. The cup profile has balanced sweetness with notes of dark brown sugar and caramel. There is a refreshing component to this coffee with the crispness of green apple and melon. Citrus essence defines the acidity, gentle, yet articulate. There is a slight "earthy-ness" to the finish, with resinous flavors providing an Indonesian twist to a profile that might otherwise be Central American. This Sulawesi coffee is truly unique, and compared to wet-hulled coffees from this same region, shows a pristine profile all the way through to the finish.
