Blind Assessment: Delicately sweet-savory. Lemon verbena, pink peppercorn, dried papaya, honeysuckle, baker’s chocolate in aroma and cup. The structure nicely balances sweet and savory; satiny-smooth mouthfeel. The herb-toned finish leads with notes of lemon verbena and papaya with baker’s chocolate as a throughline.
Notes: Southern Ethiopia produces distinctive coffees from traditional, largely indigenous varieties of Arabica long grown in the region. This is a “natural” or dry-processed version, meaning the beans were dried inside the fruit rather than after the fruit has been removed, as is the case with wet-processed or “washed” coffees.

The Bottom Line: A cocoa-toned natural-processed Ethiopia cup, deeply fruity and sweetly herbaceous.
