Blind Assessment: Deeply sweet, enticingly rich. Peach, lime zest, almond, violet, roasted cacao nib in aroma and cup. Sweet, juicy acidity; plush, velvety mouthfeel. The nuanced, resonant finish consolidates around peach and roasted cocoa nib.
Notes: Certified organic. Limu is a coffee region in southern Ethiopia that 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. Crimson Cup is a micro-roaster based in Columbus dedicated to offering high quality coffee and to helping independent cafes brew and serve it better.

The Bottom Line: A fruit-driven, harmoniously balanced Ethiopia natural.
