Intense floral, honey and blueberry-like aroma. Delicate yet sustained flavors of night flowers, lemon, peach and strawberry, with a lightly syrupy mouthfeel and rounded acidity. Finishes cleanly, with hints of the sweet floral and fruit notes found in the cup softly lingering in the long.
Certified organically grown, this coffee is processed with great care by Ethiopia's only female coffee mill owner, Asnakech Thomas, who pays high prices for ripe cherry from smallholders in Ethiopia's Amaro region. This coffee is dry-processed, meaning the beans/seeds were dried inside the fruit, producing a flavor profile that is lower-toned than the usual Ethiopia Sidamo profile, with deeper, wine-and berry-like fruit.
