Jamaica has sumthin ravers & cuppers call Blue Mountain but Slitti's got the Brown Mountain brew... covered in chocolate & coffee.
Appearance 4.7 / 5
|Surface:||clean & precise|
|Snap:||what you expect at Milk 45%: somewhere between snubbed & cuffed w/ crumbled cleave|
Aroma 8.5 / 10
just as its latte namesake - Starbucks all the way: golden coffee, steamed milk, & vanilla (w/ just a tip of butterscotch) + a little bit of pink chewing gum stuck under the table
Mouthfeel 12.6 / 15
|Texture:||built big w/ a progression all its own: micro-sand -> grit -> granules|
|Melt:||eventful, turgid, & time-consuming|
Flavor 45.4 / 50
cappuccino reale... seamless... constant... never breaks out of itself until latter-stage sugaring in the melt & becomes more dairy-apparent; chocolate just adds background warmth from its roast; drains away mocha yemmy (re: Mocha, Yemen whose coffee beans have choc notes)
Quality 18.6 / 20
Slitti right at home with the components, probably does this half-asleep in his PJs every morning. Highline execution & integration; without lecithin, resident flavors stream in. Goes for the deeper roast, trading aroma & complexity for body & sweetness (+ some over-cheerleading with double-dose sugar).
