Ethiopia Mt. Welel Buri – Green
|Review Date:||October 1999|
Blind Assessment: Floral notes shimmer above a chocolate-and-spice pungency. "Small but balanced flavor package" wrote one panelist. The "small" in that description may account for the relatively modest rating of this coffee. Or the weakness may reside in the ambiguity of the underlying pungency, which hinted at a slight hardness.
Notes: Floral notes shimmer above a chocolate-and-spice pungency. Hints of hardness. Produced by small peasant holders in full shade using traditional growing methods. Like many Ethiopia coffees, probably organically grown, but not certified as such.
