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.
Brazil Sertao Carmo de Minas
The dry fragrance has raw cocoa nibs scent, dark honey, with semi-sweet chocolate dominating the darker roast levels, and a hint of savory miso. The wet aroma sweetens up considerably and casts an image of the coffee as caramelly, with vanilla and maple in the lighter roast, with more pungent, roasty bittersweets at Full City level and darker. This is one of the cleaner and sweeter Brazils we have cupped from the higher ranks of Specialty preparation this year. Light roasts have a transparent honey sweetness, hazelnut-toasted almond roast tone, and a pleasantly tea aspect in the finish (green tea/ assam). The darker roast levels we did for espresso shots also cup really well, and make a nice brewed cup. Full City has toasted graham cracker with rich bittersweet chocolate, dark caramelized sugar sweetness, and a tangy, somewhat carbony finish. It still retains much of the sweetness of the lighter roast level though, as the cup cools. This coffee is ideal for either a SO espresso or a very clean blend base under accent coffees of your choice (although I would pick Ethiopias!)
