Reviews for Joe Van Gogh Coffee
Complex, multi-faceted, spice-toned. Dahlia-like flowers, bergamot, almond, vanilla, roasted cacao nib in aroma and cup. Sweetly tart structure with balanced, bright acidity; delicate, silky-smooth mouthfeel. Bergamot and vanilla-toned cocoa carry the quiet, balanced finish.
Evaluated as espresso. Smooth, fragrant, lively. The three reviewers for this coffee lined up nicely in respect to rating: John DiRuocco at 93, Jen Apodaca at 93, and Ken at 94. All found the buoyant, richly silky mouthfeel particularly impressive (Jen: “light and airy on the tongue like a meringue cookie”). All three reviewers additionally cited caramel notes, and two sweet flowers. The subtle but explicit sweetness attracted a range of candy-toned positives, from vanilla marshmallow (Jen) to, in three parts milk, dulce de leche (John).
