Blind Assessment: Gently fruit-toned, crisply sweet. Blueberry, honeysuckle, hazelnut, lemon zest, caramel in aroma and cup. Sweet-toned structure with juicy acidity; full, satiny-smooth mouthfeel. The finish consolidates to blueberry and caramel.
Notes: Dur Feres, which means "wild horse," is a blend of green coffees from several southern Ethiopian wet mills or washing stations, including Bombe, Qonqona, Shantawene, and Damo, all processed by the natural method (coffee is dried in the whole fruit). Established in 2010, Red Rooster is an organic-certified micro-roaster focusing on socially conscious coffee, high-quality coffee.

The Bottom Line: A cleanly berry-forward natural Ethiopia cup with sweet floral and deep caramel undertones, enticingly vibrant and rich.
