Caramel Crème Brûlée review

Origin: Brazilian Bourbon Arabica and Colombian Arabica coffee Roasting: 2 Order: Buy Caramel Crème Brûlée at Amazon Light brown foam. Strong aroma of caramel, with hints of sweetened eggs, like in a proper crème brûlée. Quite burnt taste at first but not bitter. Not an unpleasant type of burnt. Low intensity and practically no acidity. […]

Cocoa Truffle review

Origin: Brazilian Bourbon Arabica and Colombian Arabica coffee Roasting: 2 Order: Buy Cocoa Truffle at Amazon Brown foam. Definite smell of cocoa. More acidic at first taste than one’d expect, with of course the cocoa flavour being the dominant one. Acidity subsides at lower temperatures. Medium bodied. Overall much lower cocoa tones than in the […]

Sendero Mexico review

Origin: 100% Arabica from Mexico Intensity: 5/5 Buy: Order Sendero Mexico at Sendero , Order Sendero Mexico at Amazon Brown foam. Nice aroma, somewhat sweet and cocoa-like. Both aren’t that present in the tasting though. At first quite acidic, medium intensity, with a nicely contrasting bitter aftertaste. Weak crema. Blackberries and peaches are the most […]

Sendero Colombia review

Origin: 100% Arabica from Colombia Intensity: 3/5 Buy: Order Sendero Colombia at Sendero , Order Sendero Colombia at Amazon Light brown foam. Fruity aroma dominates, pleasantly sweet. Traces of vague smokiness can be noticed in the smell too. A highly acidic cup, some woodiness when very hot that transforms into a delicate chocolate flavour. Inconsistent […]

Sendero Peru review

Origin: 100% Arabica from Peru Intensity: 4/5 Buy: Order Sendero Peru at Sendero , Order Sendero Peru at Amazon Light brown foam. Sweet, strong, aroma. The smell is clearly of caramel, to the point that just from it the coffee could pass for a flavoured one. Medium body, good intensity. Bitterness is present, along with […]

Sendero Uganda review

Origin: 100% Arabica from Uganda Intensity: 5/5 Buy: Order Sendero Uganda at Sendero , Order Sendero Uganda at Amazon Brown foam. Distinct cocoa and cereals aroma. Heavy body, with a velvet feel in mouth. Crema is quite persisting. Definitely a dark roast, with a strong intensity (I’d hazard a 9-10 on the classic Nespresso scale). […]

Sendero Guatemala review

Origin: 100% Arabica from Guatemala Intensity: 3/5 Buy: Order Sendero Guatemala at Sendero , Order Sendero Guatemala at Amazon Light brown foam. Strong aroma, with an orange-like quality but still very much coffee’s. Acidic and bitter at first sip. Neither prevail over the other. When less warm, acidity becomes more prominent and a tenuous sweetness […]
