Blind Assessment: Brightly fruit-toned, deeply sweet-tart. Pomegranate, jasmine, honey, cedar, pink grapefruit zest in aroma and cup. Sweetly tart structure with brisk acidity; full, creamy mouthfeel. Finish consolidates to notes of jasmine, honey and grapefruit.
Notes: Southern Ethiopia coffees like this one are largely produced from distinctive indigenous Ethiopian varieties of Arabica long grown in the region. This is a dry-processed or “natural” version, meaning the beans were dried inside the fruit rather than after the fruit has been removed, as is the case with washed coffees. Indaba Coffee is a small family-owned business in the heart of Spokane, Washington whose mission is “radical hospitality.” Visit www.indabacoffee.com for more information.
The Bottom Line: A cleanly fruit-forward natural-process Ethiopia cup with a particularly full yet lively mouthfeel.
