Blind Assessment: Delicately sweet-tart, rich-toned. Dried apricot, dark chocolate, cashew butter, plumeria, pink grapefruit zest in aroma and cup. Sweet structure with tart, juicy acidity; full, syrupy-smooth mouthfeel. The chocolaty finish centers around notes of plumeria and pink grapefruit zest.
Notes: Southern Ethiopia coffees like this one are largely produced from distinctive indigenous Ethiopia landrace varieties of Arabica long grown in the region. Processed by the washed method (fruit skin and flesh are removed from the beans before they are dried). Kakalove Cafe 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 multi-layered floral-toned Ethiopia cup redolent with stone fruit, dark chocolate and a hint of sweet citrus zest.
