Blind Assessment: Energetic, floral, multi-layered, intriguing. Aromatic orchid, red plum, lemon verbena, nougat, sandalwood in aroma and cup. Sweet-toned structure with juicy-bright acidity; plush, syrupy-smooth mouthfeel. The flavor-saturated finish sustains all of the aroma and flavor notes of the cup in harmonious balance.
Notes: Southern Ethiopia coffees like this one are largely produced from distinctive indigenous Ethiopian varieties of Arabica long grown in their respective regions. Processed by the wet or washed method, in which skin and fruit flesh are removed from the beans or seeds before they are dried. Indaba Coffee is a small family-owned business in the heart of Spokane, Washington whose mission is “radical hospitality.” Visit www.indabacoffee.com for more information.
The Bottom Line: An exquisitely balanced washed-process Ethiopia cup with leading notes of delicate but deep florals, ripe stone fruit and a richly sweet herb tones.
