Blind Assessment: Delicate, fruit-forward, deeply sweet. Blueberry, rhododendron, sandalwood, blood orange zest, roasted cacao nib in aroma and cup. Sweet, lightly juicy mouthfeel; full, satiny mouthfeel. The gently drying finish consolidates to a cocoa-toned sandalwood.
Notes: Southern Ethiopia produces distinctive coffees from traditional heirloom 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. Established in 2009 by Amy and Scott Angelo, Oceana brews specialty coffees that have been roasted in small batches at its roasting house and café in Tequesta, Florida. Oceana’s staff is obsessed with every detail of the process, from sourcing the beans to how the coffee is poured, aimed at insuring that every cup is as rich and resonant as it should be.

The Bottom Line: An intricate, delicately composed natural-processed Ethiopia, rife with berry and exotic aromatic wood notes.
