|Coffee Origin:||Guji Zone, Oromia Region, southern Ethiopia|

|Review Date:||May 2021|
Blind Assessment: Roasty-sweet, floral-toned. Golden raisin, gently scorched cedar, dark chocolate, freesia-like flowers, molasses in aroma and cup. Crisply sweet structure with brisk acidity; satiny mouthfeel. Very sweet, long finish with pleasing notes of dark chocolate, freesia, and a complicating hint of smokiness.
Notes: Produced by smallholding farmers from largely indigenous Ethiopia landrace varieties of Arabica, and processed by the anaerobic natural method (whole fruit is fermented with limited oxygen before drying). Nine Point Coffee is a Taipei-based specialty roaster and cafe. For more information, visit https://m.facebook.com/NINEPOINTCOFFEE/?locale2=zh_TW.
The Bottom Line: A lovely darker-roasted Ethiopia processed by the anaerobic natural method, discreetly smoky and richly floral and chocolaty.
