Blind Assessment: Balanced; delicate but rich. Honey, lilac, fresh-cut cedar, roasted cacao nib in aroma and cup. Brisk acidity; light but silky mouthfeel. Flowers in particular carry into a sweet though drying finish.
Notes: Yirgacheffe is a coffee region in southern Ethiopia that produces distinctive coffees from traditional varieties of Arabica long grown in the region. Yirgacheffe coffees like this one processed by the wet or washed method (fruit skin and pulp are removed before drying) typically express great aromatic complexity and intensity with a particular emphasis on floral notes. Like virtually all Ethiopia coffees, this coffee is produced by villagers on small, garden plots interplanted with food and other subsistence crops. Founded in 1990, Lexington Coffee is an award-winning artisan roasting company based in Virginia.

Who Should Drink It: Those who enjoy a delicately lively, briskly floral- and honey-toned cup.
