|Review Date:||July 2009|
Intensely pungent aroma: blueberry, cedar, hints of flowers and honey. In the cup, bright fruit-toned acidity, silky mouthfeel and a lemon-like citrus quality that sweetens to flowers and berries. Floral tones linger in the long richly sweet finish.
Most coffee from Ethiopia's Yirgacheffe region is prepared by removing the fruit from the beans or seeds before they are dried (wet-processing) producing a cleanly high-toned, often intensely floral- and citrus-toned cup. This Yirgacheffe appears to be a "natural" or dry-processed version, however, meaning the beans/seeds were dried inside the fruit, producing a flavor profile that is lower-toned with a deeper, wine-and berry-like fruit.
