Blind Assessment: Lush and fruit-forward. Jasmine, blood orange, frankincense and almond butter in aroma and cup. Rich, vibrant acidity; syrupy-smooth mouthfeel. The juicy finish is redolent of jasmine and almond.
Notes: Yirgacheffe is a coffee region in southern Ethiopia that produces distinctive coffees from traditional varieties of Arabica long grown in the region. Like virtually all southern Ethiopia coffees, this coffee is produced by villagers on small garden plots interplanted with food and other subsistence crops. This is a dry-processed or “natural” Yirgacheffe, meaning the beans were dried inside the fruit rather than after the fruit has been removed, as is the case with wet-processed or “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.

Who Should Drink It : Those who appreciate the deeply aromatic and exotic character of an exceptional dried-in-the-fruit Yirgacheffe.
