Reviews for Te Aro Roasted
Evaluated as espresso. Crisply but sweetly bright-toned in aroma and small cup: apricot, lemon, milk chocolate. Lightly syrupy mouthfeel. Lovely delicacy and complexity in two parts milk: the mild chocolate note dominates with continuing and distinct hints of lemon and apricot-like fruit.
Rich, brandy-like notes dominate in this classic dried-in-the-fruit coffee, complicated and enriched by cherry, orange and floral nuance. The balanced, well-integrated acidity is perhaps more wine-like than brandy-like; the mouthfeel is big and syrupy. The brandy tendency turns slightly astringent in an otherwise fine, flavor-saturated finish.
Resonant, big-bodied, aromatically complex espresso. Dark chocolate, aromatic wood, and a lush, brandy-toned fruit in both aroma and small cup. The flavor softens in two parts milk, with the chocolate taking on a minty sweetness, but still maintains grown-up power and complexity.
Roundly sweet, deep, fruit-toned chocolate aroma. Medium body, silky mouthfeel and intense, penetrating flavor. The fruit-tinged chocolate carries into the cup, complicated by nut, aromatic wood and dried berry. The finish is long and mildly dry with the chocolate in particular lingering.
Sweetly crisp aroma with suggestions of night flowers, cocoa, peach. In the cup the acidity is bright but smooth, mouthfeel lightly syrupy, flavor rich with continued night floral, lemony cocoa and peach notes, all of which carry into a long, sweet finish.
