EASTLICK COFFEE // BURUNDI BUKEYE RUBIZIRI
August 18, 2016
“The flavor follows the nose, as I take my first few sips immediately post-brew. This full-bodied coffee has a thick, juicy mouthfeel and deep, voluptuous flavors. Very bold, powerful flavors, too; particularly of dark chocolate cocoa powder and honey. Further, right out of the gate, there is a rush of tart fruits that bites at the tongue. Tart cranberry juice, watermelon, and a mild lime acidity… What I’m most surprised by, though, is the massive presence of nuts and spices.
Most of my experiences with Burundian coffees provided what I’ve tasted so far in this cup: chocolate, fruit, florals… Those are pretty typical notes for this region. But this coffee also features roasted hazelnut, cinnamon, and clove nuances, making this one of the more complex Burundian coffees I’ve had in some time.”
EASTLICK COFFEE // ETHIOPIA BIFTU GUDINA
February 18, 2016
“From the very first sip to the last drop, Eastlick Coffee’s Ethiopia Biftu Gudina is absolutely stunning. A bright, fruity coffee with a voluptuously supple full body that envelops the tongue and entices the taste buds. This is another one of those Ethiopian coffees that could have been served in a wine glass; one that showcases how complex, elegant, and fine coffees can be. I can’t recommend this one highly enough.”
