MK Coffee Roasters
Ethiopia Sidamo Washed
|Bombe Village, Bensa District, Sidamo growing region, Ethiopia
|NT $650/225 grams
Richly and suavely bright, balanced. Milk chocolate, cedar, floral-toned vanilla, raspberry, hazelnut in aroma and cup. Very sweetly and lightly tart with gently bright acidity; satiny mouthfeel. Lightly drying but flavor-saturated finish leading with raspberry and vanilla.
Produced by smallholding farmers in Bombe village in the Bensa District of the Sidama (also Sidamo) Zone from selections of indigenous landrace varieties of Arabica native to Ethiopia and processed by the traditional washed method (fruit skin and flesh are removed from the beans before they are dried). MK Coffee Roasters, a short walk from the Shulin train station in New Taipei City, specializes in high-quality roasted beans to take home and expertly brewed coffees to enjoy in the café.

A classically and smoothly bright cup with Ethiopian aromatic intrigue: vanilla-leaning flowers and tart berry, in particular.
