NOTES:
Honey | Melon | Tropical fruits

A substantial looking coffee. Thick to the eye, dense w/ matte finish. The appearance of consequence and slightly of brick-red under prune juice. Noses of thin-strong-fuzzy avocado honey, dusty spices, fruits. Melon, sipping now. Feels like it looks. Sturdy and a more-bit fuzzy. Peaches. Big & sudden, everything is a top-note kick in the mouf. Piles of soft. Bags of sand, bracing. Caramelized sugar.

Not complex but a whole lot happening at once & on-par. Nuanced deeply like in how 8secs. is a long time... on a bull. Delineation is an issue. Structure doesn't even try to ward off the bum-rush. Cantelope, watermelon, more tropical candied melange stuff, dried -- apricot, papaya. Spices subdue as the cup cools. I wanted more thems, & maybe some wood. I get table syrup. Yarn?

{nethers}Suede, richly, not hidey tho. More earthen-so, & alongside barnyard notes. Not cloudy, not sunny. Also somehow a dog day of summer stillness. Weight. Wait. It's the humidity that gets ya. Grains, barley & oats. Balanced in how the eye of a storm behaves itself. But really, a brawny brew mainly-mostly shy of utter harum-scarum. Serious hi-stakes fun. "Oh, what a rush." RIP Road Warrior Animal.
