Blind Assessment: Delicate, high-toned, richly floral. Lilac, cocoa nib, dried apricot, sandalwood, a hint of coconut in aroma and cup. Sweet-tart structure with juicy acidity; plush, syrupy mouthfeel. Rich, deeply aromatic finish that carries over all the notes from the cup; lilac and cocoa nib, in particular.
Notes: Southern Ethiopia coffees like this one are largely produced from distinctive indigenous Ethiopian varieties of Arabica long grown in the region. This is a dry-processed or “natural” version, meaning the beans were dried inside the fruit rather than after the fruit has been removed, as is the case with washed coffees. 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 lyrical, delicately balanced, floral-driven natural-processed Ethiopia cup, complete and exhilarating.
