Guerrilla Coffee Sicario | Review by Kaplowitz

“Have you Kaplowitz’d to-day?”

Guerrilla Coffee
Sicario [Dark Roast]

LOCATION: Blossburg PA
ORIGIN: Honduras
VARIETAL: Arabica. Catuai

PROCESS: Wet/washed
BREW METHOD: Mud coffee



There's something blue-collar punk about this. Coffee for the factory worker's kid who just bought an amp at the pawnshop. Dark chocolate sip, richly & bigly. Say, 85% cacao. Why not?

Carob and plums fill out the earthen-driven sip. Clean, not bright at all. Slurps with notes of black walnut and more, darker dirt. Is "rad" a tasting note? Wooden bitterness braces firmly. Charred oak.

Not complex. Nuanced, though, & on account of its bold depths. Nice and weighty in the mouth... dependable. You sure "rad" ain't a tasting note, brah? Fun cup. Finish is a licorice addition to top-notes laid out long & strong.
