Reviews for Caffe Luxxe
Crisply and sweetly bright, exquisitely balanced. Tangerine zest, lavender, cocoa, cedar, fresh apricot in aroma and cup. Bright, delicate but juicy in structure; silky/satiny in mouthfeel. The quietly complex finish fades in the short but apricot and lavender revive in the long.
Crisply sweet, richly savory, vibrant. Red currant, jasmine, maple syrup, sandalwood, cacao nib in aroma and cup. The structure is harmoniously sweet-tart-savory with juicy, lively acidity. Plush, syrupy mouthfeel. The richly drying finish centers around red currant and sandalwood with a hint of jasmine in the long.
Deeply sweet, richly wood-framed. Watermelon candy, sandalwood, narcissus-like flowers, toasted pecan, maple syrup in aroma and cup. Bittersweet structure; crisp, satiny mouthfeel. Aromatic wood leads in the short finish, while notes of watermelon candy (think Jolly Rancher) and sweet florals resurface in the long.
Sweetly pungent, lightly savory. Unusual aromatics: floral-toned honey, plum, musk, a hint of coriander in aroma and cup. Crisply sweet, savory-edged structure; lightly syrupy mouthfeel. Dry and gently flavor-saturated in the finish.
Richly sweet, fruit-toned. Dried blueberry, lemongrass, brandy reduction, scorched elm, lantana-like flowers in aroma and cup. Gentle, round acidity; full, syrupy mouthfeel. The finish is carried by notes of dried blueberry in the short and lemongrass and smoky aromatic wood notes in the long.
Deeply sweet, invitingly structured. Baker’s chocolate, cedar, brown sugar, pungent berry, bittersweet, bergamot-like citrus in aroma and cup. Balanced, sweet-tart acidity; satiny mouthfeel. The finish rounds and consolidates around baker’s chocolate and brown sugar.
Engaging, fruit-forward. Pink grapefruit zest, apricot, baker’s chocolate, magnolia-like flowers, licorice bark in aroma and cup. Juicy, brisk acidity; velvety-smooth mouthfeel. The richly drying finish is carried by dried fruit and licorice suggestions in the short, with a hint of magnolia returning in the long.
Deeply and richly sweet. Jasmine, hazelnut butter, sandalwood, peach, buttery chocolate in aroma and cup. Crisply sweet acidity; velvety-smooth mouthfeel. The finish is thoroughly chocolaty, with detours into peach in the short finish and sandalwood in the clean, resonant long.
Evaluated as espresso. Sweet, musky, pungent. Baker’s chocolate, apricot, mint, lily in aroma and small cup. Lightly syrupy mouthfeel; the chocolate note carries into a rich though drying finish. Crisp and balanced in three parts milk, with continued chocolate and apricot suggestions.
Deeply pungent, chocolate-toned. Lightly scorched aromatic wood, nut-toned chocolate, apple, hints of blueberry and flowers in aroma and cup. Roast-rounded acidity; light, satiny mouthfeel. Chocolate and the scorched wood note carry into a drying finish.
Round, resonant. Dark chocolate, gently roasty oak, juicy blackberry, a hint of orange in aroma and cup. Crisp, roast-rounded acidity; full, syrupy mouthfeel. Blackberry, chocolate and oak carry into a rich though drying finish.
Crisply sweet, lightly and delicately roast-toned. Dark chocolate, grapefruit, very gently scorched cedar, a hint of lily-like flowers in aroma and cup. Quiet but vibrant acidity; light, silky mouthfeel. Chocolate leads in a rich, gently drying finish.
Immense and lavish. Blueberry, guava, dark chocolate, a hint of cognac, musky, carnal flowers in aroma and cup. Richly pungent acidity; lightly syrupy mouthfeel. Guava and chocolate in particular carry into a mildly drying but deeply flavor-saturated finish.
Evaluated as espresso. Rich, chocolaty and hearty. Scorched cedar, deep-toned dark-chocolate, night-blooming flowers, hints of anise and plum in aroma and small cup. Full and buttery, though mildly drying mouthfeel. Bittersweet chocolate and anise carry into a long, dry finish. Flavor rounds and sweetens predictably in three parts milk: buttery chocolate nuanced by continued suggestions of anise, flowers and plum.
