Blind Assessment: Fruit-toned, tropical. Lychee, guava, cocoa nib, violet, sandalwood in aroma and cup. Sweet-tart structure with crisp, high-toned acidity; lightly syrupy mouthfeel. The finish centers around lychee and sandalwood notes.
Notes: Southern Ethiopia coffees like this one are produced largely from local, indigenous varieties of Arabica. Produced by smallholding members of the Nano Challa Cooperative and processed by the wet, or washed, method (fruit skin and pulp are removed before drying). SkyTop Coffee is a USDA certified-organic specialty coffee roaster based in Manlius, New York. For more information, visit skytopcoffee.com.
The Bottom Line: A particularly fruit-centered washed-process Ethiopia cup, tropical leaning in its aromatics with a mysterious and pretty note of sandalwood running throughout.
