|Review Date:||August 2022|
Blind Assessment: Sweet, crisply brisk, orangy, balanced. Orange, freesia, fresh-cut fir, hints of cocoa nib and molasses. Bittersweet in structure with a sweet but brisk acidity. Lightly syrupy, lifty and lively mouthfeel. Gently but richly drying finish: orange, fir, a hint of cocoa nib.
Notes: Produced by smallholding farmers around the Mirado Village and washing station from selections of indigenous Ethiopian landrace varieties of Arabica, and processed by the traditional washed method (fruit skin and flesh are removed from the beans before they are dried). Certified organically grown. Fieldheads Coffee Company, based in Bigfork, Montana, features high-altitude-grown and high-altitude-roasted craft coffees.

The Bottom Line: The crisply bittersweet structure and orange and floral-toned aromatics combine grace and authority.
