Blind Assessment: Richly sweet-tart, delicately balanced. Lychee, cocoa nib, sandalwood, star jasmine, hot buttered rum in aroma and cup. High-toned structure with juicy-bright acidity; very smooth, syrupy mouthfeel. Resonant, flavor-laden finish.
Notes: This exceptional coffee was selected as the No. 11 coffee on Coffee Review’s list of the Top 30 Coffees of 2021. Produced by Tamiru Tadesse of Alo Coffee. Southern Ethiopia coffees like this one are largely produced from distinctive indigenous Ethiopian landrace varieties of Arabica long grown in the region. Processed by the natural anaerobic method in which the coffee cherries are fermented in the whole fruit with limited access to oxygen before they are dried. Genesis Coffee Lab specializes in developing relationships with and importing coffees from specialty coffee producers in Ethiopia. Visit www.genesiscoffeelab.com for more information.
The Bottom Line: A deep, richly aromatic, lyrically sweet-tart Ethiopia anaerobic cup with a hint of elegant sweet ferment akin to hot buttered rum.
