Reviews for Klatch Coffee
Beautifully structured and almost impossibly intricate in flavor and aroma. The fruit sensation is so deep and so complex that one could find almost any note in it: we settled on guava, mango and tangerine. Intensely floral – passion fruit, lilac, lily – with crisp cacao nib and sandalwood complication. Rich, lyric acidity; syrupy but buoyant mouthfeel. The aromatic fireworks quiet a bit but still saturate the finish.
Evaluated as espresso. Complexly structured: quite sweet with a tart and bitterish balance. Honey, tangerine, dark chocolate, hints of flowers and apricot in aroma and small cup. Full, buttery mouthfeel. The short finish is sweet and gently flavor saturated; the long turns richly drying. Pronounced presence in milk: fat-bodied, chocolaty, with a hint of flowers.
An original and striking, though perhaps potentially polarizing coffee. Its juxtaposition of honeyish and cherry-like sweetness with savory notes that suggest dried mushroom and thyme will not please everyone, but will delight many. Even the floral notes combine savory and sweet. Quiet but richly vibrant acidity; full, syrupy mouthfeel. The complexity of the flavor consolidates but persists in the finish.
Sweet, rich, citrusy. Molasses, complex citrus notes (blood orange, grapefruit, more), roasted cacao nib, cantaloupe, rose-like flowers in aroma and cup. Rich, resonant acidity; full, cushiony mouthfeel. Flavor-saturated, gently drying finish.
Immensely rich and complex. Blood orange, black currant, dark chocolate, sandalwood, a hint of flowers in aroma and cup. Resonantly balanced, floral-toned acidity. Plush, lively mouthfeel. Deeply flavor-saturated finish.
