Coffee Review - Ethiopia Sidamo Guji by Lexington Coffee
Roast: Medium Review Date: November 2010
Origin: Sidamo growing region, southern Ethiopia. Price: $14.95/16 oz.

Blind Assessment: Pungent, intense aromatics: ripe citrus, dark chocolate, raisin. Softly rounded acidity, lightly syrupy mouthfeel. The pungent flavor plumps out in a flavor-saturated finish.

Notes: This is a dry-processed or "natural" coffee, meaning the beans were dried inside the fruit rather than after the fruit has been removed, as is the case with wet-processed or "washed" coffees. Founded in 1990, Lexington Coffee is an award winning artisan roasting company based in Virginia. Lexington’s focus on fresh, flavorful and sustainable coffee explains its motto, “Uncommon and Uncompromised.” Visit or call 800-322-6505 for more information.

Who Should Drink It: Those who avoid aggressively acidy coffees yet still value intensity in flavor and aromatics.


Coffee, more so than wine, is a continually changing product. Recent reviews, whether written by Coffee Review or readers, are most likely to reflect current versions of a given coffee.
