Ken Davids just announced the top twelve coffees for the last year in Coffee Review.
the Stumptown El Salvador Las Nubitas was #6.
very cool indeed. especially given that it was one of only two Stumptown coffees reviewed by Coffee Review.
"A delicately intense, sweetly acidy cup. In the aroma spicy and floral with milk chocolate undertones. Perfectly balanced and lyric in the cup, with floral notes and a sweet, high-toned temperate fruit, pear or cherry. The chocolate resurfaces in the long, gently astringent finish."
i had a fun bar shift today. pretty busy, great crew.
spent most of my time working bar-back (aka chimp) which is tough work but not exactly super challenging. still had fun, however, and glad i got the chance to work the shift.
