Global Delights Coffee Honduras in Review "Wants Drunk"

“Have you Kaplowitz’d to-day?”

Global Delights Single Origin Honduran

ORIGIN: Honduras, Chinacia, La Paz
VARIETAL: Catuai & Orange Bourbon

PROCESS: Fully washed
BREW METHOD: Pour-over

INTENSITY: Medium

WEBSITE: globaldelights.com

NOTES:
Chocolate | Caramel | Apricot

Smallish notes, great gooey expanses twixt. Those in-betweens are filled to the brim w/ nutty smoky earthiness. Notes, though: A plush powdered cocoa. A caramel w/ honey malt attachment. Apricot, dried, pops in & out. Charred oak structures well but there is a ton of that bulging earth for it to contend with. A more-ish offering. Wants drunk.

Undertones are murky depths of hidey leather, toasted cereal grains a smoked paprika trace. As the cup cools, a bit of clean fruitiness tarts in a tick. [Melon.] Or tries to -- settles into body addition more-so than flavor. Does serve well there. Nuance over complexity, a deep brew. Robust but not dense... balanced on rays of light in a dark dusty room.

Imparts an almost spooky mood there, in a fun sorta manner. Vincent Price quirky, not Nathan Lane quirky. I'm fresh home from Halloween candy shopping, in the mood. I'll pivot, digress. Aroma is sweet earth, toasted marshmallow thinly. Eyeballs to a somewhat foggy view, amber highlights. A treat above the typical Honduran trick. 

[insert Halloween pun]

FINAL GRADE: B+

Kaplowitz Radio. EP199 "Fine Wit"

lo-fi & lovely



We start out w/ a quite cerebral visit from Phil Kurut, wherein we talk shop in regards to cigar reviewing. Then Lee Marsh of Stolen Throne Cigars stops by for a palate-cleansing bit of silly billiness. Finally, Mike comes in to talk about the past, present, and future of Kaplowitz Radio. ... Will EP200 be its last??? Before all that I read some Shakespeare. Closing out all that? Kaplowitz Reads Kaplowitz. Really big shoe. Important af.

Global Delights Coffee Rocksteady in Review "Smooth. Supple. Smoopple? Sure."

“Have you Kaplowitz’d to-day?”

Global Delights Rocksteady 

ORIGIN: Central and South American
BREW METHOD: Pour-over

INTENSITY: Medium

WEBSITE: globaldelights.com

NOTES:
Earth | Chocolate malt | Nuts

Smooth. Supple. Smoopple? Sure. Gently bittersweet leathery earth top-to-bottom w/ some really great complexities/nuances. But I'm on-ahead of myself. Sits in the cup looking a lot like coffee. California suede w/ brick red clouded depths. Doesn't water at the edges. Sips to swirls of 85% cacao, black walnut/pecan nuttiness & citrus which tugs chocolate.

A Terry's Chocolate Orange. That's it. Some tropical floral & fruit notes. A beef stew underpinning. A crisp black pepper twang, fleetingly. Excellent balance, very good structure -- plush, unrigid. Easy-peasy but not lazy. Cools into softwoods... pine. Yeasty. Sweet. Pine nuts. A pignoli cookie? Sure. Eye-talian. Almond paste. Homey comfy.

Clean. Finishes sweet & clean. Lip-smacking & sating. Kinda like a country drive. Long-easy curves and gradual peaks/valleys. Unfurls extraordinarily well. Suede now. Evolving. Tons of character. A chillen brew. I'd like it by a campfire on a beach. It's actually a lot like that. Malty, too. Lots going on w/ no rush to put on. Seemingly wants re-evaluated via Moka Pot.

FINAL GRADE: A-
A 90-100 B 80-89 C 70-79 D 60-69 F 0-59
