Blind Assessment: Complex, original, deeply sweet-toned. Symphonic fruit notes suggest melon, cidery pear, mint, apricot, even banana. Smoothly rich acidity; full, buoyantly lively mouthfeel. Fruit consolidates toward chocolate in a simplifying but resonant finish.
Notes: Most Yirgacheffe coffee is prepared by the conventional wet method, in which the skin and pulp are removed from the beans or seeds before they are dried, encouraging a cleanly high-toned, often intensely floral- and citrus-toned cup. This Yirgacheffe is a "natural" or dry-processed version, however, meaning the beans/seeds were dried inside the fruit, encouraging a deeper-toned profile, more pungent than bright though still extravagant in its aromatics. Produced by Ninety-Plus Estates in Ethiopia. Thirty-Thirty is a small-batch coffee roasting company located in Peoria Illinois that is committed to sourcing the finest green coffees and to expressing the individuality and character of those coffees through the roasting process and all the way to the cup.
