Wayfarer Blend Earns 92 Rating from the Coffee Review

September 25, 2015

Wayfarer Blend from Columbus Ohio coffee roaster Crimson Cup Coffee & Tea won a 92 rating from Kenneth Davids and the Coffee ReviewOur Wayfarer Blend coffee recently received an outstanding 92 rating from Kenneth Davids and the Coffee Review. Reviewers described the handcrafted coffee as, “… a quietly comprehensive cup, with crisp nut and cacao notes and a softening bloom of sweet flowers.”

Coffee Review’s blind assessment was, “Rich, round, brisk. Hazelnut, roasted cacao nib, lemon grass, sweet honeysuckle in aroma and cup. Gently and softly tart acidity; smooth, satiny mouthfeel. Hazelnut and cacao carry into a gently dry, resonant finish.” The complete September 2015 review is available on the Coffee Review website.

The blend currently has Heirloom and Bourbon varietals cultivated at elevations of 1,700 to 2,000 meters. Lightly roasted, Wayfarer Blend melds the syrupy, rich and smooth notes of tree nuts and chocolate with bright accents of exotic fruits. In 2014, Wayfarer Blend was a semifinalist in the competition for America’s Best Expresso at Coffee Fest New York.

Wayfarer Blend is available at our Crimson Cup Coffee Houses in Clintonville and Upper Arlington and at select independent cafes serving Crimson Cup beverages. Bags of fresh-roasted coffee can also be purchased on our website at a cost of $15.95 for 12 ounces.
