Blind Assessment: High-toned, richly sweet-tart. Dried apricot, tangerine zest, almond, narcissus-like flowers, cedar in aroma and cup. Sweetly tart in structure with balanced, juicy acidity; crisp yet syrupy mouthfeel. The finish is richly bittersweet and long, centered on notes of tangerine zest and cedar.
Notes: Southern Ethiopia coffees like this one are largely produced from indigenous Ethiopian varieties of Arabica long grown in the region. Processed by the wet or washed method (fruit skin and pulp removed before drying). GK Coffee provides quality specialty coffee to consumers and retailers.

The Bottom Line: A complex, resonant washed Ethiopia cup, fruit- and flora-laden, with an especially inviting bright, juicy acidity.
