Six Under Six - June 2016

Six Under Six - June 2016
June 8, 2016
 
Here's a list of coffees that score well and are all priced under six bucks. We aren't trying to aim low here but we do want to offer coffees that are diverse in both taste and cost. Here's six that we hope you will enjoy.
 
Oatmeal cookie, rindy citrus, aromatic wood, sweet tobacco, and syrupy body. Middle roasts make a great daily drinking coffee. Good for espresso.
 
Middle roasts show persistent raw to pectin sugar sweetness, notes of cooked papaya and sweetened yam. Cocoa builds at deeper roasts. Great for espresso.
 
Fruit and nut flavors highlight the cup, honey-sweet aroma, and citrus zest accents. Mouthfeel is velvety, helping define caramel sugar and pear-to-berry notes. It's great for mild espresso.
 
Cups great at light and dark roasts, bold burned sugars and fruited notes throughout. Molasses sweetness with berry, plum, tobacco accents, a brightness like underripe strawberry. Good for espresso.
 
Great for fans of dark roasting, Full City and Full City+ showcasing layered cocoa roast tones, moderate level of raw sugars, and aromatic cedar aroma. Good for espresso blending too. Good for espresso.
 
Raw sugar and vanilla, roasted almond, and a dusting of fine cocoa powder. Crowd-pleasing, balanced, bodied, low-acid cup that works well as dual-use. Good for espresso.
