Blind Assessment: Richly bittersweet, citrus-toned. Bergamot, dark chocolate, narcissus, cedar, molasses in aroma and cup. Bittersweet structure with vibrant acidity; plush, syrupy mouthfeel. The finish centers around notes of dark chocolate and bergamot.
Notes: Southern Ethiopia coffees like this one are largely produced from traditional Ethiopian landrace varieties of Arabica long grown in the region. Processed by the natural anaerobic method in which the coffee cherries are fermented in the whole fruit with limited access to oxygen before they are dried. Red Rock Roasters was founded in Albuquerque, New Mexico in 1993 in a family barn and remains family-owned and focused on quality and freshness.

The Bottom Line: A chocolaty, elegantly bittersweet anaerobic Ethiopia cup with a bergamot-like flourish and rich chocolate notes underneath.
