Blind Assessment: Evaluated as espresso. Concentrated, sweet-tart-savory. Candycap mushroom, mulberry, sandalwood, almond nougat, ginger blossom in aroma and small cup. Creamy-viscous mouthfeel; intensely sweet-tart finish. In three parts milk, tart fruit and umami notes mingle with nut-toned caramel.
Notes: Southern Ethiopia coffees like this one are largely produced from distinctive indigenous Ethiopia landrace varieties of Arabica long grown in the region. Processed by the natural method (dried in the whole fruit). Kakalove Cafe 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 triangle of sweet, tart and savory impulses in luxurious harmony.
