Surprising and melodic, delicate yet vivid. Lilac and lemon blossom, fresh sweet grass, honey, moist pipe tobacco, fresh-cut elm in aroma and cup. In structure subtly and sweetly tart. Very light, silky mouthfeel. Unexpectedly rich and flavor-saturated in the finish: pipe tobacco, honey, lemon blossom.
Southern Ethiopia coffees like this one are produced from distinctive traditional Ethiopian varieties of Arabica long grown in the region. This is a dry-processed or “natural” version, 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. Decaffeinated at the Descamex plant in Mexico by the “Mountain Water Process” which does not involve use of solvents. Old Soul is a roastery, bakery and crafter of artisanal goods dedicated to quality in every form. Visit www.oldsoulco.com or call 916-443-7685 for more information.
This very light-roasted decaffeinated coffee may suggest a fine, complex Chinese black tea in some respects, though it ultimately enforces its coffee identity with its tart structure and light-footed authority. Oddly idiosyncratic in its aromatics, but quite free of the disturbing wood notes characteristic of many decaffeinated coffees.
