Blind Assessment: Deep, rich, berry-driven. Raspberry coulis, wild honey, star jasmine, marzipan, sandalwood in aroma and cup. Sweetly tart structure with bright, crisp acidity; satiny, viscous mouthfeel. The long, resonant finish is redolent of raspberry and star jasmine with sandalwood undertones.
Notes: Guji is a coffee-growing region nestled next to Ethiopia's better-known Yirgacheffe and Sidamo regions. Guji coffees are largely produced from distinctive landrace varieties of Arabica long grown there. Processed by the natural method (beans are dried in the whole fruit). Kakalove Café is a nano-roaster located in the small city of Chia-Yi in Taiwan that strives to procure and roast the finest quality coffee.

The Bottom Line: A harmonious, integrated natural-processed Ethiopia with bright berry and deep floral notes throughout, supported by fragrant sandalwood.
