Reviews for Bacca Cafe
Delicate and exotic. Sugar cane, ripe lime, orange, fresh-cut cedar, wisteria, a hint of rye whisky in aroma and cup. Soft, lyrically sweet acidity; light, silky mouthfeel. Flavor consolidates in a sweet, cleanly whisky-toned finish.
Lyric, delicate, yet deep. Apricot, roasted cacao nib, rich flowers (freesia?), almond butter in aroma and cup. Softly brisk acidity; light but very silky mouthfeel. Flavor consolidates in a rich, resonant finish.
Evaluated as espresso. Ken (93) and his co-taster (88) went rather different ways on this deep, sweet, brandyish, lightly herby dried-in-the-fruit profile. Ken enjoyed the overripe, fermenty fruit notes in aroma and cup; his co-taster was not greatly impressed. Both had good things to say about the mouthfeel (co-taster: “huge and enveloping”); on the other hand, neither were impressed by the rather astringent finish. Ken admired the impact in three parts milk (“juicy and rich”) more than did his co-taster, who found it pleasantly berryish but a bit too tart.
Evaluated as espresso. Crisp, round, balanced. Fresh-cut cedar, baker’s chocolate, orange, toasted almond in aroma and small cup. Medium body, very lightly syrupy mouthfeel. Dryish, flavor-saturated finish. At its best in two parts milk, where it complexly expresses sweet chocolate and cedar-toned orange.
Brightly acidy but also very sweet, almost sugary: ripe plum, lily-like flowers, almond in aroma and cup. Acidity is gently rich when the cup is hot; rather dominating as it cools. Smooth, lightly syrupy mouthfeel. The finish is sweet and balanced in taste with distinct floral character, though rather sharply astringent in mouthfeel.
