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.
Burundi-Ethiopia Coop Blend SWP Decaf
This cooperative blend has structured
sweetness and body all the way up to Full City. We found that to be about the cap on roast development, as Full City+ compromises these aspects, refocusing on flavor aspects of roast. The dry fragrance
has a caramel
raisin, and a bit of 5 spice. Full City roasts take on some developed roast tones with a slightly rustic
, brown rice syrup sweetness. The aroma is deeply sweet with a developed sugar smell, dried apple, and a hint of wildflowers. This is one sweet cup of decaf, boasting caramel sugar sweet notes and conveyed with a thick, syrupy body. At City+, acidity is complex
and like berry juice, bordering refreshing aspects of their regular caffeinated counterparts. Flavors of light caramels and cocoa intermingle throughout the cup, and the finish
is like Dutch cocoa powder. At Full City+ roast
flavors build, and even a bit of aromatic wood, but much of the elegance is lost. Our best results were within the City+ to Full City roast
range. At these levels the focus is on a layered sweetness of sugar development as well as a light floral
note lingering in the background. This one will do great as espresso too at Full City roast level.
