Blind Assessment: Bright, richly high-toned. Lilac, frankincense, cocoa nib, pink grapefruit zest, pistachio butter in aroma and cup. Delicately sweet-tart with balanced, vibrant acidity; silky, viscous mouthfeel. Resonant, long, flavor-saturated finish.
Notes: Southern Ethiopia coffees like this one are largely produced from distinctive indigenous Ethiopian varieties of Arabica long grown in the region. Processed by the natural method (dried in the whole fruit). Founded in 1995 by Brooke McDonnell and Helen Russell, Equator Coffees operates retail stores in the San Francisco Bay Area and provides coffee to hundreds of wholesale accounts.

The Bottom Line: A quietly expressive, juicy natural-processed Guji cup characterized by sweet florals, delicate fruit notes, pervasive cocoa, and an inviting umami undercurrent.
