Blind Assessment: Complex — floral, citrusy, and multi-layered. Lime blossom, bergamot, lemon verbena, cocoa nib, frankincense in aroma and cup. Deeply sweet structure with high-toned, vibrant acidity. Rich, syrupy mouthfeel. The resonant, flavor-saturated finish goes on and on.
Notes: Produced by Healeanna Georgalis of Moplaco Kawo Kamina Farm from trees of the Gemadro and other local, landrace varieties of Arabica and processed by the natural method. Paradise Roasters specializes in micro-lot Arabica and Robusta coffees from Asia and other emerging origins. The company prides itself on quality and freshness, craft-roasting coffees in small batches only after orders are placed. Visit www.paradiseroasters.com or call 763-433-0626 for more information.
The Bottom Line : Impressively balanced for all its citrusy leanings, this lovely natural-processed Ethiopia cup has layers of nuance — flowers, fruit, cocoa, in particular.
