Shout out to Chilmark Coffee Company from Chilmark MA on Martha's Vineyard. I got to spend some time with the owner Todd Christy and he shared some of his amazing knowledge and amazing coffee. A super nice guy roasting some great coffee!
Todd sampled My Ethiopian and Honduran and I wanted to share his review. Thanks Todd!
"First- your coffees are really good! I always try to be super honest about my assessments of other coffees-
Ethiopian was stellar. Great nose on grind; fruits and berries. In the cup; smooth, balanced, nice fruit forward but not overpowering at all. Easy drinker with just a hint of roast which I like in these lighter roasts. A hint of black tea and blackberry but a super nice coffee. Would be so good hot over ice!
Honduran was good. Nice nose on grind- actually quite a sweet nose and fruit forward.
In the cup; great flavor but not as bright as I would want- a little flatter than the Ethiopian. Flatter sounds negative and I just mean less acidic. That could be a bunch of things including the fact that it's a more subtle roast flavor also could be just the coffee. A sweet coffee and a little more pronounced roast, which I kinda liked a lot. I'd love this as a cold coffee as the caramel would shine!!
Both- really great coffees. Very well roasted. These are better than any coffee I've had from any VT roaster. Very nicely done!!"
Email from a customer that only drank dark roast coffee
"Hi Steve, just to let you know you’ve successfully converted another dark roast lover! I definitely prefer the PNG now - you’re right - it does have a lot more complex flavor. It’s also a lot stronger and I drink less of it, which is good for my belly. Thanks Steve! "
"Loving the Honduran beans. The color is unbelievably beautiful in pour-over! Super warm and inclusive in feel, with a vintage ivory palette... (pictured below) The smell after grinding is a consumption in of itself. And the taste is so smooth, I could drink it all day. Thanks for these!"
