Blind Assessment: Richly and cleanly fruit-forward. Dried apricot, freesia-like flowers, nougat, cocoa nib, cedar in aroma and cup. Sweet-toned with juicy, bright acidity; rich, satiny mouthfeel. Flavor consolidates to pretty notes of dried apricot and nougat with undertones of cedar.
Notes: Produced by Niguse Gemeda Mude from trees of indigenous Ethiopia landrace varieties of Arabica and processed by the natural method (beans are dried in the whole fruit).

The Bottom Line: A confident, inviting natural-process Ethiopia cup with engaging notes of cocoa nib, dried stone fruit, and spicy florals.
