Espresso Review - Espresso Blend by Lino Cafe

  • Lino Cafe

    Kaohsiung City, Taiwan
  • Espresso Blend

Roast: Medium-Dark Review Date: June 2012
Origin: Not disclosed. Price: NT$300/16 ounces
 

Blind Assessment: Evaluated as espresso. Plum, peach, pungent cedar, dark chocolate in aroma and small cup, with the dark chocolate intensifying in the cup. Impressively round, creamy mouthfeel. Flavor fades rather quickly in the finish. In two parts milk the chocolate predictably rounds and sweetens, with continued echoes of plummy fruit.

Notes: Lino Café is a Taiwanese wholesale specialty roaster with a café location in Kaohsiung City. Email huanjuenhao@gmail.com for more information.

Who Should Drink It: Versatile if short-finishing blend: balanced, complexly layered straight shot displaying delicately nuanced chocolate in short milk.

Coffee, more so than wine, is a continually changing product. Recent reviews, whether written by Coffee Review or readers, are most likely to reflect current versions of a given coffee.
