Reviews for Doi Chaang Coffee
Evaluated as espresso. Deeply rich, sweetly roast-rounded. Dark chocolate, gently scorched cedar, magnolia, black cherry, almond in aroma and small cup. Full, satiny mouthfeel; crisp, resonant finish centered around dark chocolate and black cherry notes, underscored by cedar-like aromatic wood. In three parts milk, the chocolate blooms and and notes of black cherry and magnolia resurface.
Originally cupped in November 2010. Balanced, smoothly complete coffee: the raisiny fruit and cedary dark chocolate in the aroma sweetens toward fresh cherry and milk chocolate in the cup, with a tart complication of lemon. Sweetly tart, citrus-toned acidity; very smooth, silky mouthfeel. Flavor simplifies a bit in the clean finish.
Delicately rich, crisply sweet-toned. Orange-like citrus, fresh-cut fir, dark chocolate, a hint of baking spice in aroma and cup. Balanced acidity; lightly syrupy mouthfeel. Chocolate persists in a rich, mildly dry finish.
Delicate, crisp, slightly roasty. Balanced aroma and cup: dark chocolate, fir, raisin, zesty tangerine, with a slight hint of savory baking spice. Bright acidity with a drying edge; silky mouthfeel. Flavor carries into a dry finish.
Gently balanced, silky coffee. Flowers, fir, orangy fruit in the aroma. Soft acidity, lightly syrupy mouthfeel. Cocoa-toned fir, dark chocolate, raisin in the cup. Simple, sweet finish.
Deep, rich, balanced when hot. Fresh-cut fir, milk chocolate and an apricot-like fruit in the aroma; in the cup the chocolate turns crisper and more cocoa-like and the fruit more lemony. Softly round acidity, lightly syrupy mouthfeel. Flavor fades in the finish, though the pleasing chocolate note persists.
Dominated by a woody note, but an engaging, quietly spicy woody note reminiscent perhaps of sassafras tea, complicated by hints of dark chocolate and a banana-like low-acid fruit. Soft, round acidity, lightly syrupy mouthfeel. Rich in the short finish, fades a bit in the long.
A tactful ultra-dark roast dominates a cleanly sweet green coffee: Gently charred aromatic wood with a backgrounded dark-chocolate sweetness and a hint of flowers at the top. Medium body, smooth mouthfeel; slightly astringent finish.
Deep and richly roasty in the aroma: gently charred wood, raisiny dark chocolate, a hint of cardamom-like spice. In the cup medium-bodied but smoothly silky in mouthfeel. The charred, roasty character tends to overshadow the chocolate-toned aromatics in cup and finish.
Poised and balanced aroma with hints of sweet wood, cocoa, raisiny fruit. Gently rich acidity, lightly syrupy mouthfeel. In the cup quiet sweet; the cocoaish chocolate intensifies, supported by a hint of the rich, carnal aroma of night flowers. Clean finish; the cocoa note intensifies in the long.
The aroma is delicate, balanced, with nut, molasses, moist pipe tobacco, a hint of tart fruit. Soft acidity, silky mouthfeel, quietly distinctive flavor: continued nut and molasses notes, a hint of fir. The fruit notes are pungent and deep: black current, black cherry. A dry fruit-toned finish stays on the rich side of astringent.
Intense, sweetly pungent aroma: fir, cocoaish, fruit-toned chocolate. In the cup delicate, wine-like acidity, lightly silky mouthfeel and good sweetness with continued pungent, almost spicy fir character and fruit notes that suggest tangerine and apricot. Rich finish with a touch of astringency in the long.
Intriguing mid-tones throughout the profile: mainly a sort of orangy, floral citrus with a backgrounded complex simultaneously suggesting fresh earth, mushroom and decomposing leaves. All of this takes on a vaguely chocolaty tone in the finish. Gently smooth acidity, medium body.
Pure, refreshing coffee. Sweetly acidy and honey-toned in the aroma, with floral and coffee fruit (tart cherry) notes. In the cup softly acidy, delicate in mouthfeel, crisp but very sweet in structure, with continued notes of tart coffee cherry, honey and flowers, together with a slight, deepening butterscotch-like pungency. In the finish the sweetness fades, but the fundamental flavor notes persist far into the long finish.
Suave, impressively balanced coffee. Flower and orange notes in the aroma. In the cup softly acidy with a hint of white wine; medium in body but round in impression with continued floral and orange notes and a hint of milk chocolate. Clean, sweet finish.
A quiet but interesting coffee: soft, low-toned, with hints of cedar, warm spice, chocolate, and a low-acid fruit that suggests banana. The chocolate notes become more explicit in the impressively long, resonant finish.
