Blind Assessment: Delicate, sweetly tart. Lemon zest, nougat, cedar, mango, narcissus-like flowers in aroma and cup. Crisp, gentle acidity; lean, silky mouthfeel. The richly drying finish consolidates around aromatic wood tones, with intimations of sweet-tart mango.
Notes: Southern Ethiopia coffees like this one are produced from traditional Ethiopian varieties of Arabica long grown in the region. When processed by the wet or washed method (fruit skin and pulp are removed before drying) they typically express great aromatic complexity and intensity with a particular emphasis on floral notes. Like virtually all southern Ethiopia coffees, this one is produced by villagers on small, garden plots interplanted with food and other subsistence crops. Old Soul is a roastery, bakery and crafter of artisan goods dedicated to quality in every form. Visit www.oldsoulco.com or call 916-443-7685 for more information.
The Bottom Line: An invitingly accessible, crisply sweet Sidamo cup.
