Reviews for Corvus Coffee Roasters
A ready-to-drink black coffee, tested cold. Notes of peach, pomegranate, a whiff of rum barrel, cocoa powder, jasmine. Sweet-tart structure with high-toned acidity; crisp, satiny mouthfeel. The acidy brightness fades in the finish, leaving pretty fruit notes (peach, pomegranate) with hints of vaguely fermenty sweetness we associated with rum barrel. In milk, fruit recedes and cocoa powder comes to the fore.
Deeply sweet, floral-toned. Violet, pineapple, pistachio, baking chocolate, oak in aroma and cup. Roundly sweet structure with gently tart, delicate acidity; plush, very syrupy mouthfeel. Crisp, rich-toned finish.
Crisply sweet-savory, spice-toned. Cocoa powder, black cherry, sweet kabocha squash, freesia-like flowers, lemongrass in aroma and cup. Sweetly savory structure with gentle acidity; velvety-smooth mouthfeel. The resonant finish consolidates to notes of cocoa and lemongrass with a throughline of kabocha squash.
Crisply sweet-tart, engagingly bright. Tangerine zest, baker’s chocolate, tamarind, orange blossom, molasses in aroma and cup. Sweet-tart structure with brisk acidity; velvety-smooth mouthfeel. Floral in the short finish, followed by notes of baker’s chocolate and citrus zest in the long.
