Blind Assessment: Berry-toned, invitingly nuanced. Raspberry, musk, cocoa powder, freesia-like flowers, a hint of rum barrel in aroma and cup. Balanced structure with brisk acidity; plush, lively mouthfeel. The finish leads with distinct raspberry notes in the short, while the long is characterized by spice-toned florals and pleasing sweet ferment.
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). David's Nose Coffee is a specialty coffee roaster based in Taipei, Taiwan whose founder studied agronomy and has a deep interest in crop quality. For more information, visit www.dnose.com.tw.
The Bottom Line: A crisply sweet natural-processed Ethiopia cup: berry- and cocoa-toned, with an attractive touch of sweet ferment suggesting the scent of rum barrel.
