Blind Assessment: Sweetly tart, fruit- and floral-toned. Apricot, jasmine, cocoa nib, nougat, hazelnut butter in aroma and cup. Sweet-tart structure with juicy, balanced acidity; plush, syrupy mouthfeel. The resonant, flavor-saturated finish carries over all the lovely aromatics from the cup.
Notes: Yirgacheffe coffees like this one are largely produced from traditional Ethiopian landrace varieties of Arabica long grown in the region. A wet-processed or “washed” version (fruit skin and pulp are removed before drying). Founded in 1990, Lexington Coffee is an award-winning artisan roasting company based in Virginia.

The Bottom Line : A bright, balanced, deep-toned Ethiopia cup carried by lyrical stone fruit and rich floral notes.
