Blind Assessment: Richly bittersweet, complexly fruit-toned. Chocolate fudge, dried mulberry, candied pink grapefruit zest, pistachio brittle, wisteria-like flowers in aroma and cup. Deeply sweet structure with high-toned, lively acidity; velvety mouthfeel. The finish centers around notes of chocolate fudge and dried mulberry, with a pleasingly bittersweet pink grapefruit throughline.
Notes: The Yirgacheffe region produces distinctive coffees from traditional varieties of Arabica long grown in the area. This is a “natural” or dry-processed 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. Boulder, Colorado-based Dragonfly Coffee was named 2019 Micro-Roaster of the Year by Roast magazine. Visit www.dragonflycoffeeroasters.com or call 303-579-2154 for more information.
The Bottom Line : A deeply satisfying, impeccably clean natural Ethiopia cup: a chocolate bomb lifted by pretty notes of dried berries and high-toned florals.
