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.
Sweet Maria's Altiplano Blend
This is a great dual-purpose blend, and so we cupped it as both brewed coffee and espresso. Roasting to City+ - Full City is great for a cup of coffee, and the dry fragrance has a pungent sweetness of dried apricot and unrefined sugars, along with black walnut and a note of clove. Wet, the sweetness peaks with dark toffee and baked peach emanating from the crust, and candied nut on the break. Cupping this coffee, you taste the stone fruit narrative that dominates the cup profile from start to finish. There's lots of peach flesh and skin in the cup, and a nice note of black tea. The mouthfeel is silky, and the finish has the sweetness of apricot. This roast level will make a nice espresso for those seeking "lighter and brighter" side of things. But for my taste, Full City - Full City+ roasts have the best body and sweetness. The smells in dry fragrance and aroma are somewhere in the range of toasted sugar to molasses. It's a sweet smelling coffee, particularly resinous when wet, and with a smattering of baking spices. Shots have lots of sweet, refined chocolate to them with a bright, orange 'zest'. You won't get the body of a Sumatra with this blend, but it has a pleasing, viscous mouthfeel that carries the candy sweet chocolate flavors through to the finish.
