Blind Assessment: Big, deep, sumptuous. Intricate flowers (lavender, wisteria), lushly complex fruit, roasted cacao nib, fragrant sandalwood in aroma and cup. Round but crisp acidity; lightly syrupy, buoyant mouthfeel. The massive flavor-saturated finish fades slightly as the cup cools.
Notes: Limu is a growing district 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. Established in 2009 by Amy and Scott Angelo, Oceana brews specialty coffees that have been roasted in small batches at its roasting house and café in Tequesta, Florida. Oceana's staff is obsessed with every detail of the process, from sourcing the beans to how the coffee is poured, in order to ensure that every cup is as rich and resonant as it should be.

The Bottom Line: A voluptuary’s cup, lavish with layered fruit, flower and fragrant wood notes.
