  • Ethiopia Mt. Welel Ashi - Green

Roast: NA Review Date: October 1999
Origin: Mt. Welel region, close to the Sudan border, Welega Province, western Ethiopia. Price: NA
 

Blind Assessment: The nutty, sweet-herbal-toned aroma promised intrigue, but most panelists felt the cup disappointed: the acidity was a touch harsh, the flavor rather rough, the aftertaste astringent. Perhaps too much green, unripe coffee fruit made it to the bag.

Notes: The nutty, sweet-herbal-toned aroma promised intrigue but the acidity was a touch harsh and the flavor rather rough. Produced by small peasant holders in full shade using traditional growing methods. Like many Ethiopia coffees, probably organically grown, but not certified as such. From the 1998/99 crop.

Who Should Drink It:

AROMA:6

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.
