Brewing with my made in Switzerland Capresso 121 Ultima. Grind is with Capresso Burr set at 2nd smallest fine setting. Very clean finish, chewy and thick yet dry/astringent mouth feel. Notes of cinnamon, cocoa, citrus, sweet and dry smoke/hickory like, molasses,charred marshmellow,smoke lingers for minutes. This coffee reminds me of a great dry red wine. Some may be put off by the smokiness that lingers and I like it. Decent middle of the road crema production with my machine at grind using filtered water. Threw me a curve ball with the first cup and now I am loving its complexity.
