Blind Assessment: Remarkably sweet, rich-toned, deeply floral. Star jasmine, lychee, dried ginger, cocoa nib, myrrh in aroma and cup. Sweetly tart structure with juicy, lively acidity; delicate, very syrupy mouthfeel. Crisp, long, fruit- and cocoa-toned finish.
Notes: Southern Ethiopia coffees like this one are largely produced from distinctive indigenous Ethiopian varieties of Arabica long grown in the region. Processed by the traditional washed method (fruit skin and pulp are removed before drying). Kakalove Café is a nano-roaster located in the small city of Chia-Yi in Taiwan that strives to procure and roast the finest quality coffee.

The Bottom Line: An exciting washed Ethiopia cup that evokes tropical fruits and flowers, invigorating in its rich aromatics and structural intrigue.
