Reviews for Gimme! Coffee
Very sweet; floral-toned and delicate. Honey, lavender, honeysuckle, peach, guava, lightly roasted almond in aroma and cup. Gentle, bittersweet acidity. Light but lively mouthfeel. Flavor, particularly honey and almond, carries into a gently drying finish.
Pungent, sweetly tart: Cranberry, honey and nectarine-like stonefruit in an intense aroma rounded by a cocoaish dark chocolate in the cup. Rich, fruit-toned acidity; lightly syrupy mouthfeel. Fruit and cocoa in particular carry into a slightly dry finish.
Crisply assertive yet delicate. Nectarine-like stonefruit, tea rose and lime zest carry into the cup, complicated by fresh-cut fir and sweet, plummy fruit notes. Floral-toned acidity; buoyantly silky mouthfeel. More flowers and tart stone fruit in the finish.
Bright, pungent, complex. Fresh-cut fir, tartly sweet berry – strawberry, blackberry, cranberry – ripe orange and tomato in aroma and cup. Richly balanced acidity; syrupy, lively mouthfeel. Very sweet, deeply flavor-saturated finish.
A rather aggressively roasted espresso. Delicate floral and fruit notes complicate an aroma that is toasty and almost burned. In the small cup medium to full body, creamy mouthfeel, and a flavor dominated by a gentle but slightly sharp bittersweetness. The complicating fruit notes are a bit too dry to read as chocolate. Sweetens and rounds in milk but never quite blooms.
The Gimme!Coffee package describes this blend's aroma as "Centennial Harley leather." I can-t say much about Centennial or Harley, but I'd agree on the leather, with maybe a kinky smear of chocolate thrown in. Flavor is described as "Dive Bar Chic." As a dive bar innocent I'd call it dense, simple, but big and balanced, with more leather and perhaps some pleasantly pungent cedar notes. No leather makes it into the milk, but a very pleasant, high-toned chocolate-and-nuts sweetness does.
