|Roaster Location:||San Dimas, California|
|Coffee Origin:||Yirgacheffe growing region, Sidamo Province, southern Ethiopia.|
|Review Date:||December 2008|
Full floral aroma with hints of cherry, syrupy berries and grapefruit. Sweet, yet pungent acidity, creamy mouthfeel. Flavors of tart lemonade, flowers and sweet fruit. Clean, sweet citrus finish with a slight shimmer of acidity in the long.
A dry-processed or "natural" coffee, meaning the beans were dried inside the fruit rather than after the fruit has been removed, as is the case with wet-processed or "washed" coffees. Beloya Selection Nine is a specially prepared and selected lot of dry-processed coffee from the Yirgacheffe region exported by S.A. Bagersh. Coffee Klatch is an award-winning small-batch roasting company in the Los Angeles area whose resident barista and trainer, Heather Perry, won both the 2003 and 2007 United States Barista Championships brewing a Coffee Klatch espresso blend.

Who Should Drink It
Brighter and more floral than the usual Ethiopia dried-in-the-fruit coffee, yet still expressing the sweet fruit character of the type.
