Blind Assessment: Delicate, sweetly fruit-toned, complex. Dried persimmon, nougat, lilac, dark chocolate, a hint of spearmint in aroma and cup. Sweetly tart structure with wine-like acidity; satiny, viscous mouthfeel. The chocolaty finish is supported by notes of persimmon and nougat.
Notes: Southern Ethiopia coffees like this one are largely produced from distinctive indigenous Ethiopian landrace varieties of Arabica long grown in the region. Processed by the natural method (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 : The mint and persimmon suggest autumn in a cup: a richly sweet natural-processed Ethiopia, cleanly fruit-centered, with deep chocolate and spearmint suggestions.
