Blind Assessment: Deeply sweet, fruit-driven. Dried raspberry, rose hips, baker’s chocolate, lily, sandalwood in aroma and cup. Juicy, sweetly tart acidity; delicate but syrupy mouthfeel. The finish consolidates to sandalwood with a suggestion of fruit-toned sweet ferment.
Notes: Southern Ethiopia coffees like this one are produced from traditional Ethiopian varieties of Arabica long grown in the region. Like virtually all southern Ethiopia coffees, this coffee is produced by villagers on small garden plots interplanted with food and other subsistence crops. 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 wet-processed or “washed” coffees. Corvus Coffee Roasters is based in Denver, Colorado and specializes in rare and exclusive coffees from some of the finest growers in the world. Corvus focuses on processing methods and selective harvesting, which result in small, seasonal micro-lots of uniquely sweet, vibrant, and clean flavor profiles.

The Bottom Line: An appealing natural-processed Ethiopia cup with a crisp but lush, edge-of-fermenty fruit.
