Blind Assessment:

Richly sweet, fruit-forward. Dried peach, baker’s chocolate, jasmine, cedar, molasses in aroma and cup. Sweetly tart structure with bright, juicy acidity; crisp, satiny mouthfeel. Long, lingering finish that centers around dried peach and chocolate notes, supported by cedar-like wood.

Notes:

Southern Ethiopia coffees like this one are produced from traditional Ethiopian varieties of Arabica long grown in the region. It was processed by the honey method, which means that the outer skin is removed as it is in the wet or “washed” process, but at least some of the sticky fruit residue is allowed to dry on the bean and later removed by machine along with the parchment skin. Pro Aroma Enterprise Coffee Co., Ltd. is a Taiwan-based specialty coffee company. For more information, visit http://proaroma.weebly.com/or email Pro13391@gmail.com.

The Bottom Line: Deep, floral and cleanly fruit-toned, with prominent notes of dried stone fruit, spicy florals, and rich aromatic wood.
