|Roaster Location:||Topeka, Kansas|
|Coffee Origin:||Yirgacheffe growing region, Sidamo Province, southern Ethiopia.|
|Review Date:||November 2007|
Blind Assessment: A soft cup, rather simple aromatically but "well-balanced" (co-cupper Miguel Meza, 91) and "smooth and deep in structure" (Ken, 91). Miguel finds "berries, citrus and chocolate," Ken reads some quiet chocolate and perhaps some orange. The finish is quiet but impressive with continued chocolate and fruit (Miguel: strawberry and cherry) notes. (Previously reviewed and rated 92 ponts in June 2007).
Notes: 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. Biloya Selection One is a specially prepared and selected lot of dry-processed coffee from the Yirgacheffe region air-shipped to the United States to preserve freshness. PT's is a quality-oriented wholesale/retail specialty roaster with a wide and refined selection of coffee blends and origins. The PT's motto is "without the love, it's just coffee."

Who Should Drink It: A quiet cup, exotic but comfortable.
