Kaplowitz Media. Coffee Reviews: A Handful of Recently Written Recommended Offerings*

"Have you Kaplowitz'd to-day?"

When craft reviews craft. When specialty reviews specialty. When boutique reviews boutique. When the underground turns its gaze to itself. "And if you gaze long enough into an abyss, the abyss will gaze back into you." - Nietzsche. Or,  should we go back to Dostoevsky's Underground Man? Maybe more-so Prince's When Doves Cry. I don't know what I'm getting at here, so I'll just get to it.

In no particular order other than ABC'd, here's my shitpost list:

Dark Horse Los Canelos Colombia: "I was born on a Purim (in re to hamantaschen) BUT NOT LAST PURIM, dammit. There is steak & there is sizzle & there is no meat in these middlings." My full review may be read HERE.

Gold Feather Wheels Up Blend: "Simple stuff, a kindly go-juice in the AM, particularly after a late PM, then gives ya good BM & out the door you go!" My full review may be read HERE.

Killer Beans Brazilian Bombshell: "Smoky af in manner. A muscle car peeling out from a burger joint, circa 1967. I taste chrome." My full review may be read HERE.

Nectar of Life French Roast: "... notes of leather jackets worn under sleeveless denim jackets. Features a bandana used to clean a dipstick look in the cup..." My full review may be read HERE.

Tostado Palenque: "It's hard to be both mild & mesmerizing. I can pull it off & thankfully so does this cuppa goodness." My full review may be read HERE.

*Offerings here to mean my offerings. My writings. These were recommended reads, not necessarily recommended products, see?

Gold Feather Coffee Roasters Wheels Up Blend in REDUX Review "& Out the Door You Go!"

“Have you Kaplowitz’d to-day?”

Gold Feather
Wheels Up Blend

ORIGIN: Various

PROCESS: Various
BREW METHOD: French Press



The reasoning behind this redux is a switch from Moka Pot to French Press brewing. The original MP review can be read HERE. This 2d will not reference that 1t. You should read it anyway. It is superbly written.

Dark chocolate | Earth | Dark grains

Charcoaly. Once settled on the palate, grainy. Potting soil nose, lest I be remiss in noting. Peaty almost. Primary notes are dark chocolate, a brownie baked with too much flour & for a bit too long, say. Earthiness is a vegetal savory nicety, backed by a tick of black pepper, balanced by molasses.  Grains are barley, buckwheat, roasty-toasty goodly. Charcoal leaves the cooling cup. Or I acclimate.

Middlings feature fennel & poppy seed, a sorta everything bagel seasonings minus the salt. Leather is there, schvitzing on-down into a high & dense underbelly of compost, manure. Keeps settling/cooling into nicer & nicer complexities. Good depths. Moderate balance. Nothing extraordinary but quite good.  Simple stuff, a kindly go-juice in the AM, particularly after a late PM, then gives ya good BM & out the door you go!
