Blind Assessment: Juicy, bright, fruit- and floral-toned, savory-edged. Shitake mushroom, dark chocolate, grape candy, wisteria, amber in aroma and cup. Sweet-tart structure with cola-like acidity; plush, syrupy mouthfeel. Long, lingering, flavor-saturated finish.
Notes: Produced by smallholding farmers largely from local landrace varieties of Arabica, and processed at the Anasora Washing Station owned by Isreal Degefa utilizing a proprietary anaerobic natural method (whole fruit is fermented with limited oxygen before drying). Quartet Kaffe is an artisan roastery in Taiwan founded in 2018, dedicated to pursuing coffee performance art and offering unique specialty coffee.

The Bottom Line: A uniquely composed anaerobically processed coffee with sweet-tart-savory impulses in balanced harmony.
