Blind Assessment: Juicy, fruit-toned, bright and lively. Raspberry jam, dark chocolate, hop flowers, thyme, wild honey in aroma and cup. Richly bittersweet in structure, balanced with juicy acidity; very smooth, syrupy mouthfeel. The finish centers around notes of raspberry and dark chocolate supported by richly bittersweet hop flowers.
Notes: Produced by brothers Asefa and Mulugeta Dukamo of Daye Bensa entirely of local heirloom varieties of Arabica, and processed by the natural method (dried in the whole fruit). Nostalgia Coffee Roasters was founded by Taylor Fields in 2018 as a mobile café; it has since added specialty roasting and online sales of select fine coffees.

The Bottom Line: A nuanced, multi-layered natural-processed Ethiopia cup, cleanly fruit-forward and briskly chocolaty with a berry throughline.
