|Coffee Origin:||Sidama growing region, southern Ethiopia.|
|Est. Price:||$16.00/12 ounces|
|Review Date:||March 2011|
Rich floral-toned aroma complicated by sweetly tart berry and citrus. In the cup bright yet balanced acidity, light body with more flowers and fruit flavors; the complex fruit notes range from pungent orange to sweet apricot. Sustained floral-toned bittersweet chocolate in the rich finish.
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 “natural” or dry-processed, meaning the beans were dried inside the fruit, producing a flavor profile that is lower-toned than the usual Ethiopia Sidama profile, with deeper, wine-and berry-like fruit. A member of the Clabber Girl family of businesses, Rex Roasting is “an exhibition style, small-batch artisan roaster” that is focused on roasting high-quality specialty coffee.

Who Should Drink It
Rich, shifting complexity should please those who like oak-and-fruit dominated red table wines.
