Blind Assessment: Richly sweet, roast-rounded. Dark chocolate, gardenia, gently scorched cedar, red plum, hazelnut in aroma and cup. Sweet structure with little discernible acidity; full, creamy mouthfeel. A chocolate-driven finish is supported by notes dark chocolate, gardenia and hazelnut.
Notes: This coffee tied for the second-highest rating in a cupping of single-origin coffees available in U.S. supermarkets for Coffee Review’s February 2020 report. USDA-certified organic. Purchased at a Whole Foods Market in Winston-Salem, North Carolina. Processed by the washed method (fruit skin and pulp are removed before drying). Larry’s Coffee sources only organic, fair trade-certified, shade-grown coffees and is a certified B-corp. Visit www.larryscoffee.com for more information.
The Bottom Line: A washed Sidamo cup with a developed roast profile that amplifies chocolate and floral notes; deeply and richly sweet throughout.
