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.
Guatemala Huehuetenango El Turbante
The dry fragrance of El Turbante has vanilla and toasted sugar, along with a very sweet smell of raw honey. Hot water brings up a smell of praline nut in the steam, with a mingling of butter and sugar caramelization. There is a smell of dark fruits as well that translates to red raisin on the break. This is a nice, sweet coffee with a range of acidity from tartaric (green grape) to malic (red pear). And while not 'explosive' by any means, the acidity remains clear and present from light to dark roasts. Fruits like raisin and plum are subtle and pleasing. El Turbante cools with a red apple sweetness along with an underlying flavor of green nut. The finish is sweet and with a nice bittering allusion to citrus rind. This is what we call 'approachable' in every sense of the word, and will also make a great dual-use coffee.
