Blind Assessment: Aromatic, wood-framed, berry-toned. Berry melange, fresh-cut cedar, agave syrup, lily, grapefruit zest in aroma and cup. Sweet structure with gentle, round acidity; crisp, silky mouthfeel. Wood-framed finish with berry and grapefruit undertones.
Notes: Coffees from the Sidama region like this one are produced from distinctive, largely indigenous Ethiopian landrace varieties of Arabica long grown in the region. Processed by the natural method (dried in the whole fruit). Founded in 1994, Coffee By Design is a specialty coffee roaster in Portland, Maine that also operates three coffee shops in town, as well as one in Freeport. Visit www.coffeebydesign.com.
The Bottom Line: A berry- and aromatic wood-framed natural-processed Ethiopia cup, sweet and gently inviting.
