Dark Horse Coffee Roasters Los Canelos Colombia in Review "A Mulled Wine Attempts & Almosts"

“Have you Kaplowitz’d to-day?”

Dark Horse Coffee Roasters 
Los Canelos Colombia

ORIGIN: Colombia
PROCESS: Washed
BREW METHOD: French Press
INTENSITY: Medium/Medium-Full

NOTES:
Caramel | Plum | Grains

Quite grainy and a bit shopping-bag baggy. Once that dissipates, a nifty juicy plum note comes in. Ripe af & of excellent focus. Underneath that but still a primary per se, is a rich caramel w/ cocoa butter booster all its own. Actual undertones are predominantly dense golden earth with aspects of the primaries trickling down into nuanced depths. As the cup cools, savoriness injects itself there, leather & a fungal mushroomy thing. A mulled wine attempts & almosts.

Nuanced as stated but not complex in the least using any other barometer of such. Very Colombian, ultimately. Coffee flavored coffee; how meta. Finish happens a bit dryly via a viscous astringency not accompanied by a note its own. Still, sweet there. Here's something -- sits a bit boozy on the corners of the tongue. Smooth in a talc fashion, fine grit. Aroma is an unfortunate revisiting of grainy/baggy. 

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