Blind Assessment: Crisp, delicate, richly high-toned. Apricot, cocoa nib, honeysuckle, sandalwood, agave syrup in aroma and cup. Sweet-toned structure with lively acidity; full, syrupy-smooth mouthfeel. Cocoa-toned apricot and honeysuckle enliven the quiet finish.
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 wet or washed method (fruit skin and pulp are removed before drying). The company name Amavida combines the Spanish words for love and life, reflecting Amavida’s multifaceted commitment to fairness and fine coffee.

The Bottom Line: A washed-process Guji cup with leading notes of stone fruit and spicy florals and an engagingly juicy, citrus-leaning structure.
