Intensely floral aroma nuanced by suggestions of lemon, bergamot, and sweet herb. In the cup crisp acidity, light but silky mouthfeel, and continued vivid floral and lemon notes; the hints of herb soften. Very sweet, clean finish, with the flavor notes rounding toward a sort of floral chocolate.
Koke is a particularly high-elevation district within the famed Yirgacheffe growing region, as well as the name of a wet mill or washing station in the area. Owned and operated by Solomon Worku, the Koke mill has processed several award winning coffees in recent years.

Who Should Drink It
A quintessential Yirgacheffe cup, exciting, almost overpowering in its floral and bergamot orange intensity.
