Blind Assessment: Delicate, richly floral-toned. Lavender, blood orange, cocoa nib, almond butter, sandalwood in aroma and cup. Balanced structure with fine, floral-toned acidity; silky-smooth, vibrant mouthfeel. The long, sweet finish centers around notes of cocoa nib, lavender and blood orange.
Notes: Produced in the Guji growing region, an area nestled next to Ethiopia's better-known Yirgacheffe and Sidamo regions, from trees of the indigenous 74112 selection of Arabica, and processed by the washed method (fruit skin and flesh are removed from the beans before they are dried). 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: A complex, nuanced washed Ethiopia cup alive with spice-toned florals, richly bittersweet citrus, and distinct cocoa.
