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. Delicately sweet, citrus-toned. Tangerine zest, cocoa nib, jasmine, almond, cherry blossom in aroma and small cup. Crisp, silky mouthfeel; cocoa-toned, citrusy finish. In three parts milk, cocoa notes move forward while tangerine falls back to a supporting role.
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 New Taipei City, Taiwan. Visit www.tasterscoffee.com for more information.
The Bottom Line: An engaging natural-processed Ethiopia in Nespresso-compatible format, especially appealing in the bright, cocoa-toned straight shot.
