Blind Assessment: Delicately vibrant, crisply sweet-tart. Peach, cocoa nib, lilac, pink grapefruit zest, pistachio in aroma and cup. Balanced, sweetly tart in structure; richly silky mouthfeel. The satisfying finish consolidates to notes of cocoa-toned stone fruit.
Notes: Southern Ethiopia coffees like this one are largely produced from traditional Ethiopian varieties of Arabica long grown in the region. This lot was processed by the wet or washed method (fruit skin and pulp are removed before drying). Southern Ethiopia coffees processed with this method typically express great aromatic complexity and intensity, with a particular emphasis on floral notes.

The Bottom Line: A high-toned, elegant washed Yirgacheffe cup with a floral and stone fruit throughline.
