Blind Assessment: Complex, richly sweet-tart. Nectarine, Meyer lemon zest, cocoa nib, nougat, lilac in aroma and cup. Sweet-tart structure with juicy, balanced acidity; delicate, satiny-smooth mouthfeel. The finish consolidates to notes of cocoa nib and Meyer lemon.
Notes: Certified USDA Organic. Produced by 1,000 smallholding farmers organized around the Testi Ayla washing station, and processed by the traditional washed method (fruit skin and flesh are removed from the beans before they are dried). SkyTop Coffee is a USDA certified-organic specialty coffee roaster based in Manlius, New York. For more information, visit skytopcoffee.com.
The Bottom Line: An elegant stone fruit-driven washed Sidama cup with leading notes of nectarine and citrus and a cocoa-toned throughline.
