Blind Assessment: Sweet-toned and buoyant; delicately pungent. Moist pipe tobacco, guava-like fruit, honey, rose-like flowers in aroma and cup. Gentle, complexly expressed acidity; silky, very lively mouthfeel. The floral notes in particular carry into a sweet, flavor-saturated finish.
Notes: From the Shilcho cooperative. G1 refers to Grade 1, the highest grade of Ethiopia coffee. Processed by the orthodox wet or “washed” method, in which the fruit residue is removed or “washed” from the beans immediately after picking and before drying. This coffee is certified organically grown and Fair Trade certified, meaning it was purchased from small-holding farmers at a "fair" or economically sustainable price. Kakalove Café is a nano-roaster located the small city of Chia-Yi in Taiwan that strives to procure and roast the finest quality coffee.

Who Should Drink It: Those who prefer their coffees gentle but exhilaratingly complex.
