Sure. I was referring to their nonsensical justification of their roasting style. I wish roasting companies would just tell us what they taste in their coffees instead of florid prose about nothing. Only the last sentence of those two paragraphs really addresses that.
Also coffee scores aren't like most wine scores (I know you weren't making the comparison) in that it isn't some abstract reflection of a coffee's goodness or how great the reviewer feels after a cup. It's the sum of various aspects of a coffee which tends to give high scores to "interesting" coffees, which are coffees that have a wide and often loud flavor profile. A super acidy, fruit and flower bomb of a coffee will score much higher than one that's a bit more muted, but not everyone will enjoy such a coffee, especially if they're drinking it with food, or if the flavors aren't well balanced.
