Blind Assessment: Brightly sweet-tart. Pomegranate, cedar, baking chocolate, freesia-like flowers, brown sugar in aroma and cup. Sweet-tart structure with pert acidity; crisp, velvety mouthfeel. The gently drying finish leads with notes of baking chocolate and freesia, rounding to cedar and brown sugar in the long.
Notes: Southern Ethiopia coffees like this one are largely produced from distinctive indigenous Ethiopian varieties of Arabica long grown in the region. This is a dry-processed or “natural” version, 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.
