Blind Assessment: Complex, intricate, deeply sweet. Star jasmine, cocoa nib, nectarine, frankincense, spearmint in aroma and cup. Bright, juicy acidity; plush, velvety mouthfeel. Resonant, flavor-saturated finish leads with notes of star jasmine and nectarine, balanced by suggestions of crisp cocoa.
Notes: Southern Ethiopia coffees like this one are produced from distinctive traditional Ethiopian landrace varieties of Arabica long grown in the region. Processed by the wet or washed method (fruit skin and pulp are removed before drying).

The Bottom Line: An elegant, crisply sweet, floral-driven washed Yirgacheffe cup anchored by deep cocoa suggestions.
