Blind Assessment: Confidently sweet-tart, decidedly floral. Honeysuckle, tangerine zest, plum, pipe tobacco, maple syrup in aroma and cup. Sweet-toned with bright, juicy acidity; silky-smooth mouthfeel. Crisp, flavor-saturated finish.
Notes: Southern Ethiopia coffees like this one processed by the wet or washed method (fruit skin and pulp is removed before the beans are dried) typically express great aromatic complexity and intensity with a particular emphasis on floral and citrus notes. Coffee Please is an artisanal roastery and cafe in Taipei’s Beitou District, famous for the nearby Yangming Mountain hot springs. Visit www.facebook.com/CoffeepleaseTW for more information.
The Bottom Line: A bold, resonant, richly floral washed Ethiopia cup, confident in its high-toned citrusy and honeysuckle-redolent aromatics.
