|Roaster Location:||Denver, Colorado|
|Coffee Origin:||Yirgacheffe growing region, Sidamo Province, southern Ethiopia.|
|Review Date:||December 2008|
Intense aromatic notes of flowers, blackberry wine and grapefruit. Sweet floral acidity and juicy mouthfeel. Big, floral-toned flavor with cherry, lemon and a hint of black currant. Clean, sweet finish with a slight cocoa note.
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. This is a specially prepared and selected lot of dry-processed coffee from the Yirgacheffe region exported by S.A. Bagersh. Founded by Herb, Joseph, and Jake Brodsky in 2002, Novo Coffee is a quality-oriented boutique roasting company with fine coffee, an elegant package, and the slogan "Get Closer" - to coffee, as it turns out.

Who Should Drink It
A powerful, rather muscular version of the lush dried-in-the-fruit Ethiopia profile.
