Guerrilla Coffee Soldado | Review by Kaplowitz

“Have you Kaplowitz’d to-day?”

Guerrilla Coffee

LOCATION: Blossburg PA
ORIGIN: Honduran
VARIETAL: Arabica: Catuai

PROCESS: Wet/washed
ROAST: Medium
BREW METHOD: Pour-over



Stiff oily delivery. Salacious! Wooden savory notes; oak & leather sip -- clean & crisp. Bright but balanced well. Slurps to the tune of rather delicate hibiscus bits, less delicate nuttiness: Black walnut | almond, a bit of a savory fungal vibe. Toasty earthen underbelly. Rich, thinly.

Complex on not too ornately long of a flavor list. Each note goes a long way and each plays well in the other's underneaths. Too, remains delineated. Nuanced. Finishes with a salted bit of blueberry pie; holds that a good bit. (Noses more floral | fruity than it sips | slurps.)
