Blind Assessment: Unusual profile; gentle, round, with a soft, almost creamy mouthfeel and quiet, complex aromatics: orangy citrus, cocoa, flowers, pine, rosemary. Sweet, with a slight salty/savory edge particularly prominent in the long finish.
Notes: Ethiopian coffees like this one processed by the wet or washed method (fruit skin and pulp is removed before drying) typically express floral and citrus notes with particular intensity. This unusual variant on the type comes from the small-beaned, native Ethiopia variety Bolo, and is brought into the U.S. by boutique exporter/importer Ninety Plus Coffee. Temple Coffee is a quality-focused retail and wholesale specialty roaster active in Sacramento, California since 2005. Committed to sourcing, roasting and brewing the finest coffees, Temple features coffee from distinguished single estates and cooperatives around the world. Visit
Who Should Drink It: This unusual coffee should please those who find many admired coffees too acidy and intense, but who still enjoy distinction and originality.
