The Boldly Go was carefully roasted for you by Thou Mayest Coffee Roasters. This semi-washed coffee was sourced from the growing region of Aceh in Sumatra and was produced by the various small holder producers at 1,400 meters. Boldly Go is exactly what you need for some liquid courage to "boldly go", the cup is rich with notes of dark chocolate and earthy undertones.
The idea of Boldly Go appealed to me, but the reality disappointed. The dark roast is earthy and bold, certainly; it is also sour on the finish, and overly bitter, even when brewed via careful pour-over in a chemex, and hand-ground with a Hario burr grinder. I wouldn't buy this again, but it's at least drinkable.
Good. Still a little too acidic
Very earthy without being bold. Mediocre at best.
My favorite so far, smooth, tasty, great texture. It did not get here until the 22nd, which was frustrating, but things should be on track now.
Moving rapidly to acid note after brewing
I would describe this as more of a light roast. Lots of citrus but not much dark chocolate.
Good but fairly different from the last batch - I think I preferred the first batch as it seemed a little brighter. This is a bit on the earthy side - almost "savory" if that makes sense? I prefer a little more balance and fruity notes I think
I brew in a chemex which I
Something is missing here. It tastes weak - like there's more flavor in there that hasn't been fully realized by the roast.
I switched to making cold brew coffee recently and this one tastes amazing as cold brew!
I really loved this one. It was rich and smooth and perfect for cold mornings.
A bit to earthy
PERFECT IN EVERY WAY. PERFECT for am, PERFECT for after dinner.
Too bold? Both times I've made it, it seemed too strong, overpowering.
A very earthy and bold taste that is still very pronounced under layers of milk. I've made this as espresso shots and as pourover, and both taste great.
