Delicate, intricately rich. Jasmine, sandalwood, lychee, roasted cacao nib, orange zest in aroma and cup. Sweetly tart acidity; silky-smooth mouthfeel. The aromatic wood-framed finish is crisp in the short, rounding to cocoa tones in the long.
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 fourth-highest rating in a tasting of holiday coffees for Coffee Review‘s December 2016 tasting report. Naked Coffee is a Sacramento-based roaster with four coffee shops in the area, in addition to a live music venue and two dining establishments. Visit www.nakedcoffee.net for more information.
A lovely, balanced natural-processed Ethiopia from Limu, a growing area less-known than the iconic Yirgacheffe and Sidamo regions.
