Our resident coffee expert Bill Walsh slurps up Peter Asher’s Brazil Bob-O-Link.
By Bill Walsh
Rounding off one of the busier coffee review periods of my year was Peter Asher Coffee and Tea. A coffee roaster that’s been roasting for twenty years, I was glad to meet their acquaintance and review two of their coffees.
The first up is their Brazil Bob-O-Link, a coffee touted to possess citrus, black tea and nut flavors. The coffee appeared of a medium roast (dark brown & no exterior oils) and I cupped it via siphon, french press and drip.
In sipping the drip, I noted flavors of honey, leather, bran, nuts, fig and spinach amidst a medium body.
The french press possessed sweet pecans, honey, fig, pear, romaine, a bit of wheat and medium body. This infusion held much more brightness and potency.
The siphon rolled out molasses, cocoa, pear, cornbread, romaine, fig and a little milk within the medium body. Not as much nuttiness in this cup but still a good coffee.
Simply put, the Bob-O-Link definitely sampled variably but overall, I could definitely see the notes of sweetness, a little nuttiness and emphasis on bran or cocoa. A good coffee overall though not my all-time favorite Brazilian. Still, if you seek a quality Brazil coffee, visit Peter Asher’s website to try out the Bob-O-Link.
