Nicaragua Bourbon City Roast
AROMA: 8 - ACIDITY: 9 - BODY: 9 - FLAVOUR: 9 - AFTERTASTE: 8
Soft, round, balanced. Quiet aroma: almond, apricot. In the cup complicates and deepens: honey, ripe lemon, cocoaish chocolate, continued almond and apricot. Crisp, juicy acidity; syrupy mouthfeel. Flavor carries persuasively into a sweet-toned finish.
El Patron Nicaragua Espresso
AROMA: 9 - BODY: 8 - FLAVOUR: 9 - AFTERTASTE: 9 - WITH MILK: 9
Evaluated as espresso. Great depth and range of sensation. Between Ken (94) and co-taster Sean Kohmescher (94) about a dozen aroma/flavor descriptors surfaced, most circling around fruit (stone fruit, wine grape, berry) and nut-toned dark chocolate. Medium to full body; silky/syrupy mouthfeel; crisply dry, flavor-saturated finish. Balanced, chocolaty and berryish in two parts milk.
Don Rey's Natural Prep Bourbon
AROMA: 8 - ACIDITY: 7 - BODY: 8 - FLAVOUR: 8 - AFTERTASTE: 8
Deep-toned, rich coffee with distinct dark chocolate and raisiny aromatic wood notes in aroma, cup and finish. Roast-muted acidity, fullish mouthfeel, dark-chocolaty finish. The cup simplifies a bit as it cools.
Don Rey's Private Reserve Bourbon, City Roast
AROMA: 7 - ACIDITY: 7 - BODY: 8 - FLAVOUR: 8 - AFTERTASTE: 8
Enthusiastic co-cupper Andy Newbom (89) found this deep, chocolate-leaning coffee luxurious ("sweet and heavy lidded aroma"), balanced ("all-over tongue-hugger"), and complex ("smooth and sultry dark chocolate ... with a hint of lemon/orange and a dash of florals)." Ken (88) noted a pungent fruit that definitely suggested a nut- and peach-toned dark chocolate, but found a bit less complexity than did Andy.
