Blind Assessment: Crisply sweet, fruit-toned. Raspberry, fresh-cut fir, maple syrup, cocoa powder, freesia-like flowers in aroma and cup. Sweet in structure with brisk acidity; satiny-smooth mouthfeel. Gently drying finish centers around quiet notes of raspberry and fir.
Notes: Oromia is a coffee region in southern Ethiopia that produces distinctive coffees from traditional 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. 4 Plus Coffee is a mobile coffee shop in Taipei, Taiwan.

The Bottom Line: A friendly, accessible Ethiopia cup animated by pleasing berry and spicy floral notes.
