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.
Espresso Workshop #29 - Uso Doble
Where to begin. Since this is a Workshop blend, let's first talk about how this handles as espresso. At Full City to Full City+, the dry fragrance is loaded with layered chocolate roast tones. These are especially sweet at the lighter end, and are spiced with notes of cinnamon, clove, and a hint of florals. Our darkest roast had pungent cacao smells along with hints of dark fruits like ripe peach and plum. This makes a fantastic shot of espresso. Up front there is a citrus brightness, that while lively and bracing, is anchored by a sweet, but high % dark chocolate flavor. At Full City, fruit flavors like raspberry, mandarin, and fig are tethered together by a syrupy, viscous mouthfeel. Fruits are slightly muted at Full City+ and make way for big flavors of chocolate roast. The finish remains very sweet and winds up in the realm of salt caramel filled dark chocolates. All four coffees cup extremely well on their own, scores ranging from 88 - 90 points, and blend together nicely in the cup. The dry fragrance at City+ has honey, cinnamon, and a slight jasmine note. The sweetness is bolstered when adding hot water and the crust has a strong smell of brown sugar and butter. The aroma is very nice, and the same can be said for the cup flavors. There's a nice solid honey sweetness, and as the coffee cools, flavors of peach and apricot really come through. The acidity is clean and defined, like lemon water, and the finish reminds me of graham cracker crust. Should you decide to give this lighter roast a whirl in your espresso machine, expect slightly aggressive high notes with fruited chocolate trailing behind. All in all this Workshop blend is very versatile, living up to the name "Uso Doble"!
