Blind Assessment: Richly sweet-tart, high-toned. Apricot nectar, almond nougat, jasmine, cedar, cocoa nib in aroma and cup. Richly sweet-tart structure with juicy-bright acidity; very syrupy, vibrant mouthfeel. Cocoa-toned finish with undertones of apricot and cedar.
Notes: Produced by the Hassen family at their estate farm in the Guji Zone from distinctive selections of landrace varieties of Arabica long grown in the region, and processed by the washed method (fruit skin and flesh are removed from the beans before they are dried). Founded in 2011, Yellow Brick Coffee is a specialty roaster and cafe in Tucson, Arizona. Visit www.yellowbrickcoffee.com for more information.
The Bottom Line: A classic washed Ethiopia cup: deep-toned, lively, balanced, bright, and aromatically complex.
