Fruit-nectar-like aroma with suggestions of peach, flowers, honey and perhaps sweet white wines such as Gewurztraminer. Lush acidity, medium to full body, silky mouthfeel and juicy, fermenty fruit flavors carrying from aroma into cup: lemon, dried berries, tangerine, cherry, balanced by a pungent hint of aromatic wood. Flavors soften in the finish but linger with a complex balance of sweet and savory.
Grown in the Guji region of Sidamo Province, this Ethiopian coffee is a dry- or "natural-" processed coffee, meaning the beans were dried inside the fruit rather than after the fruit was removed, as is the case with wet-processed or "washed" coffees. This coffee won first place at this year's Ethiopia Taste of Harvest Competition. Paradise Roasters prides itself on roasting and shipping coffee only after orders are placed. Its metaphoric mission is to bring some paradisiacal warmth from the coffee-growing south to the cool environs of Minnesota. Visit www.paradiseroasters.com or call 763-433-0626 for more information.
Who Should Drink It
Particularly fine example of the Ethiopia dried-in-the-fruit cup: lushly fruity yet pungently brisk.
