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 Kaffa - Michiti Coop
The dry fragrance has a unique scent, with rich sweetness, honey and marzipan, along with a restrained dried peach hint. With a little more roast, there is a chocolate brownie note, rounded out with baking spices. Adding the hot water, the aromatics change to jasmine pearl tea, raw sugar, butter, vanilla, and a bit of ginger on break. This interesting blend of sweetness and spice with such a clean and clear distinction is something unexpected in Kaffa coffee; which are historically dry-processed, leaving these notes buried behind processing flavors. The cup has the same character, with dried peach and Earl Grey tea. It's a very balanced cup in this respect, with brightness and substantial, creamy body. Notes of rose hips and hibiscus lend a complexity to the cup profile. Dark notes are especially fruited with flavors of pineapple and citrus. The finish reveals a spice mix of fresh ginger, cinnamon stick, a hint of allspice. The roast notes, especially in the City+ to Full City range, have a compelling "sugar-browning" note, with the interacting flavors of caramel, butter and vanilla. The Full City roast makes for a great SO espresso too.
