Blind Assessment: Delicate, sweetly herbaceous, caramel-toned. Lemon verbena, black tea, caramel, oak, a hint of honeysuckle in aroma and cup. Sweet-toned structure with gentle, round acidity; crisp, velvety mouthfeel. The quiet finish centers around notes of lemon verbena and caramel.
Notes: Ethiopia coffees like this one are produced largely from local, indigenous varieties of Arabica. Produced by smallholding members of the Kata Mudaga Cooperative Union and processed by the wet, or washed, method (fruit skin and pulp are removed before drying). Brain Helmet is a Wisconsin-based specialty roaster that provides retails and wholesale coffees, as well as education and training. For more information, visit https://brainhelmetcoffee.com/.
The Bottom Line: A friendly, accessible washed Ethiopia with sweet herbal notes supporting the caramel-toned center.
