Sharing wine experiences with an emphasis on "terroir" wines of great character in the absence of scores.
Klatch Ethiopian Kochere Grade 1 / Washed this morning. I’ve recently embarked on a search for a really good cup of coffee. After several disappointing and inconsistent experiences with Peet’s, I decided to give some smaller roasters a go. Klatch was the first of several I will be trying in the next few weeks. I also have coffee coming from Stumptown, Heart, and Counter Culture. Should be interesting to see how these roasters stack up. This particular coffee is a light to medium roast that makes a very bright and high acid cup that has very nutty undertones. I personally prefer to grind this a little finer for maximum flavor. The cup was a hit with the dear wife, as well. I can recommend this for sure.
I am not a professional wine taster, nor do I have any professional training in the wine trade. I am a wine enthusiast who has spent countless hours tasting wines of many different styles. My palate is not aligned with a single wine critic, and I call all wines "as I taste them". My site is a source of tasting notes and wine recommendations as well as warnings without conflict of interest. You'll just have to figure out how your palate aligns with mine. My palate generally tends to veer towards Old-World wines that put a premium on terroir and lovely balance and finesse, rather than raw power...please keep that in mind as you read my notes.
