Blind Assessment: Evaluated as espresso produced as a “ristretto” 25ml (.85-ounce) shot using a Nespresso capsule espresso brewer with whole milk heated using a conventional steam wand. Crisply chocolaty, sweet-toned. Baking chocolate, orange zest, almond, rhododendron, fresh-cut oak in aroma and small cup. Satiny-smooth mouthfeel; gently drying, cocoa-toned finish. In three parts, milk, crisply sweet and chocolaty with pleasing rhododendron notes.
Notes: Southern Ethiopia coffees like this one are largely produced from distinctive indigenous Ethiopian landrace varieties of Arabica long grown in the region. Processed by the natural method (dried in the whole fruit). Taster’s Coffee is a nano-roaster based in Taipei City, Taiwan. Visit www.tasterscoffee.com for more information.
The Bottom Line: A solid Guji natural in Nespresso-compatible format with crisp chocolate, vanilla-like florals, and orange zest notes.
