6/8/09 Afternoon Cupping

So Eric has just returned from a long weekend in Michigan and has brought back some coffee from The Ugly Mug in Ypsilanti, Burundi Bwayi Lot 11.  Although we are not offering this as a coffee on wholesale or for sale in the shop, we thought that we might post some cupping notes for it.  We also decided to cup our FTO Sumatra Mandheling Gayo Mountain, we really enjoyed this coffee and hope you will too!

Burundi Bwayi Lot 11:

Aroma- Light roasted chocolate, Graham, almond nuttiness   Flavor- Black cherry, bourbon richness, rose petal, apple blossom, and red, yellow, and green pepper medley  Body- Juicy as it cools, lighter mouth feel with a little black pepper spiciness

FTO Sumatra Mandheling Gayo Mountain:

Aroma- Pepper, woody Flavor- strong pepper, cedar and hickory woodiness, some citrus and smoky tobacco notes  Body- Medium, overall wet and waxy finish.
