outshining through

sometimes when i cup there's a coffee on the table that i actually want to drink right then and there. generally i'll spit most of what i cup, only swallowing down spoonfuls of coffee when i'm looking for a leave.

i was cupping this really nice decaf costa rica (la magnolia estate, swp) that was so pleasant and pleasantly different from the other coffees on my table. i just kept slurping and drinking, slurping and drinking. a nice zing, good lemon tang but not so bright and acidic you want to scream. there's enought body in there to balance it a bit. feels kind of like a lemon meringue pie very lightly sprinkled with shaved bittersweet chocolate. oh, that's nice.
