Roast: Medium Review Date: January 2011
Origin: Yirgacheffe, Ethiopia Price: $15.95/12 ounces
Depth and syrupy opulence in an extravagant aromatic profile: heavy-scented dusk flowers, rich, almost carnal fruit (apricot, plum, cherry), a brightening hint of lemon, crisp cocoa intensifying toward a resonantly flavor-saturated finish.

Roast: Medium-Dark Review Date: January 2011
Origin: Southern Ethiopia Price: $12.75/12 ounces
Pungent fresh-cut fir dominates in aroma and cup with complex fruit and floral complication: dark chocolate, plum, a touch of cherryish brandy. Sweetly bright acidity, lightly syrupy mouthfeel. The flavor simplifies slightly in an otherwise rich, sweet finish.

Roast: Medium-Light Review Date: January 2011
Origin: Southern Ethiopia Price: $12.00/12 ounces
Light roasting foregrounds the nut and lemon-orange character with a backgrounded spicy rose note. At its most complex in the aroma, where the nut displays a cocoa-like crispness and the rose is particularly deep and spice-toned. Balanced, buoyant acidity, silky mouthfeel. The nut note carries into a rich though rather simple finish.
