Blind Assessment: Intense, complex, sweetly pungent. Honeysuckle, tangerine, apricot and plum, spicy aromatic wood. Richly and roundly bright acidity; silky mouthfeel. Bright, mildly drying, flavor-saturated finish.
Notes: Yirgacheffe is a coffee region in southern Ethiopia that produces distinctive 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 are removed before drying) typically express great aromatic complexity and intensity, often with a particular emphasis on floral and citrus notes. This coffee is certified organically grown and Fair Trade certified, meaning it was purchased from one or more small-holding farmers at a “fair” or economically sustainable price. It is a single lot from Alemu Washing Station (wet mill) in Kochere Woreda imported into Taiwan by the Pebble Company. 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: A big, soaring, intense version of the floral and brightly fruit-toned Yirgacheffe profile.
