    Consistent, smooth, easy to drink, not too bitter, often too dark for me, but this is light. For cold brew, which I dont typically like, a 5.

    Well, over the past 10 years Ive possibly consumed more Barismo than any other roaster, guzzling their cold brew for years. But I had never had their espresso. I know its a seasonal, but this was special. A massive crema, syrupy mouthfeel, and big flavors of chocolate, blackberry, and roasted walnut. It was so good I would have gladly had another right away.

    One of the best cold brews in New England for sure. A few of us coffee connoisseurs in Lincoln, MA actually drive in for it and pick it up for each other. Fruity, balanced, clean, crisp. It's heaven on a summer day.

    Cupping Method:Cold brew from shop, multiple tries (we drive into Arlington to get it)

    Light, fruity, smooth cold brew. Maybe dangerously chuggable. Hadnt previously seen Cold Still? but this can tasted very fresh. Maybe a little crisper than the tap version I had earlier in the week from Barismo store. And definitely crisper than the corporate version I enjoyed in the office for many years.

    Cupping Method:Can purchased from Barismo in Arlington

    Interesting. I tried this blind and thought African/Central American blend. Very drinkable, very smooth, very fruity. A lot of apple and white grape. Plesant black tea accent throughout. Nice mouthfeel and clean finish. I dont get tons of complexity, but a nice coffee you'd be happy with any day of the week.

    This is a very easy-to-drink African blend, especially once cool, that is very smooth. I don't get a lot of complexity, and there may be some lingering notes some folks one like (but they are very light). Something like a grapefruit rind or licorice. The licorice to me was a hint of black, not red as Barismo's tasting notes indicated. I think you have to be a specialty coffee flavor squinter to pick it up. The acidity and complexity are on the low side. Reminds me of a solid breakfast blend in a lot of ways.
