Tostado Coffee Palenque in Review "A Singer-songwriter"

“Have you Kaplowitz’d to-day?”

Tostado Palenque - Light Roast

ORIGIN: ​Chiapas, Mexico
PROCESS: Fully washed, sun-dried
BREW METHOD: French Press

INTENSITY: Mild-Medium


Maple syrup | Pinewood | Caramel

Brightly softly sweet. Straight-forward & delineated by a lively greenish-fuzzy pinewood. Maple syrup, bigly -- a reduced-fat sort. Caramel burgeons on the cooling cup. Not crisp but quite clean. Undertones are nectarine with a balancing white pepper, finely-ground. Underbelly is loose golden earth & hay that drips upwards, swirls thattaway thru the profile. Comfortably dizzying. 

Imperfectly balanced deliciously toward sweet. Not overly complex but as deeply nuanced as a light roast gets. Stubby & stubbly legged finish... short & wooly. Aroma is a muted muffled honey thing. An orange blossom. Simple & lovely. A floral-patterned sundress of a brew. White cowboy boots. Meadow. Wildflowers. A singer-songwriter. I do believe I have found Paula Cole's prairie song in the bottom of my mug.
