Blind Assessment: Chocolaty, cleanly fruit-forward. Dark chocolate, blueberry, sandalwood, wisteria, lemongrass in aroma and cup. Sweet-tart structure with brisk acidity; syrupy-smooth mouthfeel. Richly chocolaty finish with undertones of wisteria and sandalwood.
Notes: Produced by the Hassen family at their estate farm in the Guji Zone from distinctive landrace 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.

The Bottom Line: A balanced, chocolaty, richly fruit-toned organic Ethiopia natural cup.
