Blind Assessment:

Fruit-toned, richly chocolaty. Dark chocolate, dried blueberry, freesia-like flowers, honey, cedar in aroma and cup. Sweet-tart structure with round, gentle acidity; full, syrupy mouthfeel. The finish consolidates to blueberry and chocolate notes, with a hint of cedar.

Notes:

Southern Ethiopia coffees like this one are largely produced from indigenous Ethiopian varieties of Arabica long grown in the region. Processed by the dry or “natural” method, 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. Topéca Coffee is an artisan roaster with three café locations and a roastery in Tulsa, Oklahoma.Visit www.topecacoffee.com or call 918-398-8022 for more information.

The Bottom Line: A cleanly crisp yet plushly fruit-toned, natural-processed Ethiopia cup.
