Reviews for Melitta

Review Date: Dec 2005

Price:

(Tasted as produced by the Melitta One:One single-serve brewing device using a Melitta 44mm pod at a cup volume of 8 ounces): Soft, shallow aroma with vanilla- and peach-toned fruit notes. In the cup this coffee landed on the palate like a liquid brick: bitter, hard and monotoned. Some sweetness and vague suggestions of vanilla and caramel were quite overwhelmed by bitterness in the cup and a soapy astringency in the finish.

Price:

Virtually no aroma. The cup is potatoey and flat on first impression, but with patient drinking a quietly satisfying profile emerges, with a balance of bitter, sweet, and acidy tones complicated by a low-key fruit that sneaks up on milk chocolate.

Price:

The aroma is woody with faint lemon and chocolate suggestions. The body is substantial, the cup round in mouthfeel with a low-toned acidity complicated by a vague dry fruit, more like prune pits than prunes. Further flattens and turns astringent as the cup cools.

Price:

The aroma is full and smokily roasty though monotoned. In the cup thinnish, smoky and simple, with rather unpleasant tobacco notes, the stale ashtray sort rather than the rich pipe tobacco kind.

Price:

The aroma is complete but fades quickly. The acidity is bright, clear, and classic, hovering on the edge of winy. Some resonance echoes under the acidity, but both pleasure and complexity are concentrated at the top of the profile.
