Sharing wine experiences with an emphasis on "terroir" wines of great character in the absence of scores.
Heart Roasters Ethiopia Duromina. First of all, sorry for the long break. I was on vacation and now that I am jet lagged and back, this coffee was a joy to sip. As always, @heartroasters roasted this just right IMO. It tastes like a hypothetical blend of Kenyan and Yirgacheffe coffee because it has the power of Kenyan coffee, but also the light, tea-like quality of Yirgacheffe. I like this version of Duromina bettter than Stumptown’s. The next couple of weeks will be a coffee treat in the mornings!
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.
