Blind Assessment: Evaluated as espresso. Richly aromatic, deeply sweet-tart. Dried apricot, cedar, lilac, almond, dark chocolate in aroma and small cup. Syrupy-smooth mouthfeel; crisply fruit-toned finish. In cappuccino-scaled milk, apricot and lilac notes are particularly inviting.
Notes: Southern Ethiopia coffees like this one are largely produced from distinctive indigenous Ethiopian landrace varieties of Arabica long grown in the region. Processed by the natural method (dried in the whole fruit). The Singing Elephant Coffee Roastery is a specialty coffee roaster and cafe based in Taipei.

The Bottom Line: A crisp, fruit-forward natural-processed Ethiopia roasted for espresso, with notes of dried stone fruit, dark chocolate, and sweet-toned florals.
