Blind Assessment: Big, sweet, plumy. Dark chocolate, brandy, ripe strawberry, kumquat, honeysuckle in aroma and cup. Lively, flavor-saturated acidity; satiny mouthfeel. Rich finishing, saturated with flowers and a fruit-toned chocolate.
Notes: Yirgacheffe is a coffee region in southern Ethiopia that produces distinctively floral- and fruit-toned coffees from traditional varieties of Arabica long grown in the region. This is a “natural” or dry-processed Yirgacheffe, meaning the beans were dried inside the fruit, encouraging a flavor profile that is lower-toned and more pungent than the more familiar wet-processed Yirgacheffe floral- and citrus-toned profile.

Who Should Drink It: Those who enjoy big, fruity red table wines. This is a dried-in-the-fruit coffee that makes no apologies for its lush, brandy-soaked sweetness.
