Blind Assessment: High-toned, sweetly tart. Lychee, tamarind, dark chocolate, marjoram, fresh-cut oak in aroma and cup. Sweet-toned structure with gentle, round acidity; plush, creamy mouthfeel. Long, lingering finish with notes of dark chocolate and tamarind.
Notes: Produced by smallholding farmers from local heirloom varieties of Arabica and processed by the natural anaerobic method, wherein whole fruit is fermented with limited oxygen before drying. Founded in 1994, Coffee By Design is a specialty coffee roaster in Portland, Maine that also operates three coffee shops in town, as well as one in Freeport. Visit www.coffeebydesign.com.
The Bottom Line: A sweet, fruit-toned anaerobic Ethiopia cup with particularly viscous, creamy mouthfeel and inviting tropical fruit notes.
