Peachy, strawberryish fruit is balanced by pungent aromatic wood – cedar, pine – in both aroma and cup. Chocolaty hints. Sweet-toned, brandyish acidity; syrupy mouthfeel. Rich short finish; flavor fades in the long and a very slight salty hint emerges.
This is a dry-processed or "natural" coffee, meaning the beans were dried inside the fruit rather than after the fruit has been removed, as is the case with the wet-processed or "washed" coffees more typical of southern Ethiopia. This coffee consists entirely of local heirloom varieties of Arabica. Lone Pine Coffee Roasters is a Bend, Oregon based company founded in 2007 by Scott and Anna Withman to bring exquisite coffees to Central Oregon and beyond. Visit
Who Should Drink It
Those who enjoy the sweet fruit, brandy and pungent aromatic wood character typical of the best dried-in-the-fruit coffees. Rather light-roasted, but sensitively so.
