Blind Assessment:

Delicate, intricate, richly sweet. Dried jasmine, mango chutney, myrrh, baker’s chocolate, bergamot in aroma and cup. Sweetly tart structure with lively acidity; delicate, satiny mouthfeel. Tart-leaning, rich-toned finish, characterized by notes of mango chutney and baker’s chocolate.

Notes:

Limu (also spelled Limmu) is a growing region in southern Ethiopia that produces distinctive coffees from traditional varieties of Arabica long grown in the area. Ethiopian coffees like this one processed by the wet or washed method (fruit skin and pulp are removed before drying) typically express great aromatic complexity and intensity with a particular emphasis on floral notes. Temple Coffee is a quality-focused retail and wholesale specialty roaster active in Sacramento, California since 2005. Committed to sourcing, roasting and brewing the finest coffees, Temple features coffee from distinguished single estates and cooperatives around the world.

The Bottom Line: A bright and zesty, floral- and spice-driven wet-processed Ethiopia cup.
