Coffee Review: 93 points
Blind Assessment: Evaluated as espresso. Rich-toned, deeply chocolaty. Dark chocolate, agave syrup, pomegranate nectar, almond brittle, cedar in aroma and small cup. Crisp, syrupy mouthfeel; chocolaty-sweet finish with undertones of almond and cedar. In cappuccino-scaled milk, dark chocolate notes dominate and a freesia-like spicy floral note emerges.
Notes: A blend of two coffees processed by the traditional washed method (fruit skin and flesh are removed from the beans before they are dried), one from Hacienda La Minita in Costa Rica and the second from Menendez Estate farms in El Salvador. RamsHead Coffee Roasters is a family-owned company founded by Bozeman, Montana natives Caleb and Laura Walker that specializes in direct trade microlot coffees.
The Bottom Line: An aromatic, sweet-toned, deeply chocolaty espresso blend driven by tart fruit and rich nut tones, with an added layer of complexity from spicy florals in three parts milk.
Background: Backwoods espresso is the new blend to the RamsHead lineup. For the past 9 years our signature Snowfield Espresso has dominated our coffee lineup. Although we believe Snowfield will continue to be a top seller, our goal was to develop a new espresso blend that lined up with a bit more traditional flavors and profile people has come to love in espresso.
After many trials and roast profiles by our QC team, Backwoods Espresso was born. Comprised of coffees from two of our longest farm direct partners from Hacienda La Minita in Costa Rica and The Menendez Estate farms in El Salvador. Both coffees are beautiful estates blends featuring fully washed coffees.
A full bodied espresso with large traditional notes of dark chocolate and caramel will please espresso drinkers from one end of the spectrum to the other.
Why Backwoods? Our family outside of work lives in one of the most beautiful places on planet earth here in Southwest Montana. We greatly enjoy spending time in the "Backwoods" of Montana. Whether it be camping, hiking, hunting, fishing, skiing or just generally exploring the great outdoors of Montana, we are drawn to spending time in the backwoods. So wherever you find yourself, hopefully in the backwoods, enjoy some fabulous coffee and cherish the beauty found where you live.
