Blind Assessment: Richly chocolaty, deeply fruit-toned. Chocolate fudge, raspberry coulis, sandalwood, lilac in aroma and cup. Sweetly tart structure with juicy acidity; plush, lively mouthfeel. The floral- and fruit-toned finish is supported by chocolate tones throughout.
Notes: Produced by the Hassen family at their estate farm in the Guji Zone from distinctive traditional varieties of Arabica long grown in the region. This is a dry-processed or “natural” 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. Certified USDA organic. Founded in 1990, Lexington Coffee is an award-winning artisan roasting company based in Virginia. Lexington’s focus on fresh, distinctive and sustainable coffee is reflected in its motto, “Fresh, Flavorful & Fair.” Visit www.lexingtoncoffee.com or call 800-322-6505 for more information.
The Bottom Line: Fruit, flowers, and chocolate come together in harmonious balance in this impressively deep-toned natural-processed Ethiopia cup.
