Reviews for Lexington Coffee Roasters
Price: $13.75/12 ounces
Moist composting leaves (or maybe moist, composting rose petals) layered with a fermenty, brandyish dark chocolate in this richly pleasing but slightly bitterish traditional Sumatra. Gently tart, floral-toned acidity; silky/syrupy mouthfeel.
Remarkably clean-finishing dried-in-the-fruit profile. Opulently sweet but crisp: roses, nut, cocoa, molasses, black tea. Balanced, well-integrated acidity; lightly syrupy mouthfeel. Extraordinarily rich, sweet-toned, densely flavor-saturated finish.
Price: $12.50/12 ounces
Soft and balanced. Sweet-toned nut dominates in aroma and cup, with rounding melon-like fruit and citrusy top notes. Crisply tart acidity; lightly syrupy mouthfeel. Simple, sweet, gently rich finish.
Price: $15.75/16 ounces
Very complex, rather edgy Sumatra. Pruny dark chocolate, cherry, brandy, fir in the aroma. Quietly rich acidity; full, lightly syrupy mouthfeel. Woody, sweet, herby character in the cup, reminiscent of sassafras perhaps. Floral top notes, continuing dark chocolate and cherryish fruit. Very sweet in the finish, with ongoing floral and wood notes.
Price: $15.75/16 ounces
Lemon-zest brightness and pungent fir in the aroma. The lemony character rounds in the acidity and the cup, where it is deepened and complicated by a crisp, floral-toned cocoa. Light but smoothly silky mouthfeel; cleanly sweet and flavor-saturated finish.
Evaluated as espresso. Sweet, deep, fruit- and chocolate-toned aroma. Balanced, gently pungent in the small cup: cedar, butter, lemon, anise. Lightly syrupy mouthfeel; clean, flavor-saturated finish. Rounds and sweetens but retains complexity in two parts milk: lemon, cedar, dark chocolate.
Price: $16.25/16 ounces
Crisp, delicate, balanced. Lime, peach, nut and cocoa suggestions in aroma and cup. Bright acidity; silky mouthfeel. The nut and cocoa turn toward bittersweet chocolate in the dry finish.
Richly sweet in aroma and cup; notes of dry berry, citrus and stone fruit slowly emerge and become more prominent as the cup cools. Lightly syrupy mouthfeel and sustained fruit-toned acidity. The fruit character lingers in the lushly sweet finish.
Pungent, intense aromatics: ripe citrus, dark chocolate, raisin. Softly rounded acidity, lightly syrupy mouthfeel. The pungent flavor plumps out in a flavor-saturated finish.
Intense, rich, deeply sweet aroma: dark chocolate, aromatic wood, a hint of fruit. In the cup balanced acidity, silky to lightly syrupy mouthfeel, and continued dark chocolate with a sweetly tart orange-toned fruit that becomes more pronounced as the coffee cools. Some chocolate carries into a rich, very slightly astringent finish.
Balanced notes of pungent cedar, sweet-toned chocolate and a whisper of sage in the aroma. Intense in the cup: sherry, nut, earth and a continuing dry cedary or herb-like pungency, all persisting in the long, dry finish.
Sweet, mildly pungent aroma with hints of chocolate and anise. In the cup, balanced, fruit-toned acidity, lightly syrupy body and a sustained complex of orangy citrus and continued chocolate with a berry-like fruit complication. The chocolate turns bittersweet in the finish.
Pungent fruit and floral notes in cup and aroma: berry and black currant combine with flowers, citrus and a hint of butterscotch. The flavor notes linger well into the long finish, along with a pleasant dry sweetness.
Sweet and deep in aroma and cup: notes of moist, freshly fallen leaves, and a ripe, slightly fermented fruit that reaches toward dark chocolate in the cup. Fullish body. Simple, cedar-toned finish.
A graceful floral-toned cocoa dominates. In the aroma very sweet-toned, buttery pungency, flowering grass, orangy citrus. In the cup, gentle, roast-muted acidity, silky mouthfeel, and the impressive floral-toned cocoa that persists into a rich finish.
