This was average. I didn't find the flavor notes very apparent. A solid cup, but not as bright and flavorful as I had hoped. I did try as an espresso and it was pretty good and easy to dial in.
Chemex - This is very good. And juicy. Not quite as juicy as Methodical's El Salvador El Almendro, but still good. I will try to pull out the banana note more. Espresso - definitely got more acidity and juicy flavor as espresso. I liked this coffee more as an americano.
lightest light roast I've had
Don’t like nutty
Pretty darn good coffee. I'd buy again. Cartel doesn't disappoint.
This cup was consistently juicy and I could definitely taste something like clementine. I couldn't really get the banana, but I'll play around with it more.
I brewed this coffee using both Chemex and V60 and have enjoyed both methods. I used the 4:6 method on the V60 and something similar to that method on Chemex. V60 was 15g coffee to 225g water and Chemex was 50g coffee to 700g water. V60 was juicier and I think I almost maybe got banana out of the Chemex, now that I come to think of it.
4/5 stars because it is not my favorite out of the coffees I've tried taste-wise, but still a very, very good coffee. Thank you Cartel.
Definitely very smooth, but also very very light. The flavors are very unpronounced. Brewing as espresso.
Couldn’t draw out the notes
a solid coffee, lacking some of the complexity I enjoy, but good nonetheless.
Great as espresso and pourover. Very well balanced with pretty accurate notes
Creative and rich. Great for lattes and flat whites
Nice and citrusy
Good bean juice!
Excellent coffee. Love the citrusy notes. Get the banana on the finish.
Coffee smelled fantastic but was very bland in terms of taste. I typically use the 16:1 coffee ratio. I attempted this in a drip pot, v60, and a Chemex. The Chemex was the best of the brew methods but even then, I wish the tasting notes were more prevalent.
This coffee was awesome. Definitely one of the better roasts I’ve had in some time. Gorgeous complex flavors while being easy to drink
Fantastic! This coffee worked amazingly well over every method I made it. Very well rounded and sweet.
Enjoyable cup with moderately distinctive flavors. Could have had a touch more brightness
I really enjoyed this. Enjoyed the fruity taste and complexity of flavor.
