Blind Assessment: Sweetly tart, fruit-driven, chocolaty. Berry melange, dark chocolate, freesia-like flowers, cedar, pink peppercorn in aroma and cup. Brightly sweet with vibrant, high-toned acidity; lively, syrupy mouthfeel. Long, lingering, flavor-saturated finish, juicy and bright.
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, wherein whole fruit is fermented with limited oxygen before drying. Established in 2010, Red Rooster is an organic-certified micro-roaster focusing on socially conscious, high-quality coffee. Visit redroostercoffee.com or call 540-745-7338 for more information.
The Bottom Line: A berry extravaganza of a coffee – think boysenberry, mulberry and raspberry — grounded by rich chocolate and sweet herb notes.
