Gimme! Coffee at Mott Street.
While still scorching hot, Finca San Luis La Gloria is dazzlingly aromatic. On the nose, orange peel and wine grape aromas lingers.
When the cup is still hot and not as acidic, the mouth feeling reminds me of a light smoother orange juice without pulps, and so does the characteristics. The sweetness tingles on the tip of my tongue just right and, as the acidity becomes more evident, characters of citrus follow in a complete sense of balance. After a while I experience a subtle synergy between the light roast and fruits, combining an impression of milk chocolate.
Gimme! Coffee brings me the most memorable cup of coffee since my arrival in the big city of New York. It’s a full fruit bomb! A fruit bomb that facade the roasted aromas in an incredibly fine way, just the way I like it. The intricacy and balance couldn’t be better. The exact rested acidity is just unbelievable. Will stop by for another cup and review soon. Well-done Gimme! Coffee!
