Lush, fruit-toned. Very ripe blueberry, Cognac, oak, dark chocolate, lily in aroma and cup. Sweet-toned, winy acidity; velvety-smooth mouthfeel. The finish consolidates around cocoa-toned blueberry, with suggestions of chocolate.
Limu (also Limmu) is a growing district in southern Ethiopia that produces distinctive coffees from traditional varieties of Arabica long grown in the area. This is a dry-processed or “natural” coffee, 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. This coffee tied for the second-highest rating in a cupping of coffees from roasting companies five-years-old or younger for Coffee Review‘s February 2017 tasting report. Nobletree owns two farms in Brazil, operates a roastery in Brooklyn, New York, and currently operates one cafe in Manhattan with more planned. Visit nobletreecoffee.com for more information.
A decidedly fruit-centered natural-processed Ethiopia, with a tasteful edge of sweet ferment.
