Blind Assessment: Richly sweet, floral-toned. Narcissus-like flowers, almond, maple syrup, apricot, myrrh in aroma and cup. Sweetly tart in structure, with bright, juicy acidity; delicate, silky mouthfeel. The richly drying finish is resonant with notes of amond and myrrh.
Notes: Produced by Ato Esmael and his friends and family at their estate farm in the Guji Zone of southern Ethiopia. It is largely produced from distinctive traditional varieties of Arabica long grown in the region. This is a dry-processed or “natural” coffee, 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.

The Bottom Line: A deeply sweet natural-processed Ethiopia coffee with narcissus-like flowers and pungent, resiny myrrh as throughlines.
