Blind Assessment: Perfumy, rose-like floral notes, spicy sandalwood, ripe raspberry, moist pipe tobacco in a deep yet buoyant aroma and flavor. Richly crisp, balanced acidity; silky mouthfeel. Flavor carries deep into a resonant finish.
Notes: Yirgacheffe is a coffee region in southern Ethiopia that produces distinctively floral- and fruit-toned coffees from traditional varieties of Arabica long grown in the region. Yirgacheffe coffees like this one processed by the wet or washed method (fruit skin and pulp is removed before drying) typically express great aromatic complexity and intensity with a particular emphasis on fruit and floral notes. In addition to his retail roasting operation Aroma Roast Coffees, Simon Hsieh also operates Soaring Phoenix Trading, a business focused on purposed-built commercial espresso blends and high quality single-origin coffees.

Who Should Drink It: Superb variant on the great Yirgacheffe cup: deep, resonant, exotic.
