Blind Assessment: Crisply sweet-tart, bright and juicy. Tamarind, pink grapefruit zest, cocoa nib, freesia, redwood in aroma and cup. Bright, juicy, electric acidity; deep, syrupy-smooth mouthfeel. Sweet, long finish with notes of cocoa nib and pink grapefruit zest.
Notes: Processed by the yellow honey method. With all honey processing methods, some sweet pulp or fruit flesh (“honey”) is allowed to adhere to the beans during drying. In the yellow honey variation, a thin layer of pulp is allowed to dry on the beans, more than with white honey, but less than is the case with red or black honey. Kakalove Café is a nano-roaster located in the small city of Chia-Yi in Taiwan that strives to procure and roast the finest quality coffee.

The Bottom Line: A rare yellow honey-processed Ethiopia cup with the clean vibrancy of a washed coffee and the nuanced depth associated with careful honey processing.
