Coffee Review just reviewed our Rwanda Karaba...
great score, rave review.
it's interesting to note the differences in perception. the "astringency" that Ken Davids notes in the review (and considers a negative) is something i've perceived as a lovely vanilla note. amd while i think the coffee does, in fact, have lovely floral notes (i've described coffee blossom, orchid, etc.) to me it's dominated by the chocolate/berry truffle tone (when hot, a tart raspberry and as it cools it moves toward cranberry).
is Ken Davids' review wrong? hell no!
is my palate wrong? nope.
and therein lies the challenge of evaluating perception of taste.
regardless - i'm really really excited about this. folks here are going to be so proud.
a deserved honor!
