Reviews for Noble Coffee Roasting
Sweet-toned, balanced. Red currant, almond butter, clove, orange blossom, cedar in aroma and cup. Balanced, bittersweet structure with citrusy acidity; full, satiny mouthfeel. Finish consolidates to red currant and clove.
Delicate, sweetly tart. Strawberry, caramel, musk, cocoa butter, magnolia in aroma and cup. Quietly tart-leaning structure with sweet undertones; plush, syrupy body. The perfumy, almost musk-like finish is characterized by tart fruit notes in the short and cocoa butter in the long.
Delicate, high-toned, sweetly tart. Lemon verbena, toffee, pomegranate, dark chocolate, lavender in aroma and cup. Vibrantly tart acidity; very silky, smooth mouthfeel. The quietly expressive finish centers around crisp lemon verbena notes and hints of spicy lavender.
Evaluated as espresso. Clean, sweet, gently tart, honey-toned. All three reviewers were impressed by the clean, sweet balance of this espresso, delivering almost identical scores: John DiRuocco 92, Jen Apodaca 93, Ken 92. Honey figured in everyone’s descriptors; Ken and John also found berry and a backgrounded cocoa butter. Citrusy in three parts milk, with an enveloping chocolate. “I could drink this every day,” Jen added.
Light roasting foregrounds the nut and lemon-orange character with a backgrounded spicy rose note. At its most complex in the aroma, where the nut displays a cocoa-like crispness and the rose is particularly deep and spice-toned. Balanced, buoyant acidity, silky mouthfeel. The nut note carries into a rich though rather simple finish.
