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 particular Gesha from Esmeralda is always a treat, with such a complex profile of florals, fruits, and sweetness. It goes without saying that we eagerly await the arrival every year! The dry fragrance smells of sweet red berries, ripe cherry, and a delicate floral accent, almost like fresh hopped beer. The wet aroma has tons of jasmine, browns sugars, honey, cinnamon stick, and soft milk chocolate at slightly darker roast levels. There's also a candy sweet smell of watermelon that reminds me of gummy candies. The cup has light, but juicy body, and interestingly, after these knock-out aromatics, the first sip of the hot brew can be a little bit underwhelming. Wait for the temperature to drop a few degrees and the profile blows wide open. It's no surprise that the cup is floral - SO floral. There's an undeniable jasmine flavor that weaves it's way throughout the well-knit flavors of fruit and spices. Ripe melons are a big presence, as well as a nectarine, plum, and passion fruit. Spice notes flourish with cinnamon stick and a note of coriander, and the acidity verges on effervescent. This is definitely a coffee that fares best outside of Full City, in the City - City+ roast range.
Region: Jaramillo, Boquete, Chirqui
Processing: Wet Process (Washed)
Crop: August 2013 arrival
Appearance: .02 d/300gr, 17-19+ Screen
Intensity/Prime Attribute: Medium intensity overall, but intense aromatics / Floral and fruited aromas, medium-to-light-body, delicate, yet intense on the pallet
Roast: General Esmeralda Gesha Roast: Pungent roast flavors of 2nd crack do harm to what this coffee is really about. This is a "2nd Crack is Taboo" coffee. Try to get it to a City or City+. Full City still has great aromatic complexity and perhaps more balance and body, but much less floral character
