Olympia Coffee Roasting
|Roaster Location:||Olympia, Washington|
|Coffee Origin:||Yirgacheffe growing region, south-central Ethiopia.|
|Review Date:||September 2008|
Blind Assessment: Aromas of flowers, crisp citrus and melon. Lively, floral toned acidity with smooth body. A sweeter version of citrus carries into the cup with more flowers and a hint of ferment that reads as blueberry. Fairly clean finish with mild toasty and nutty qualities.
Notes: Yirgacheffe is a coffee region in southern Ethiopia that produces intensely floral- and fruit-toned coffees from traditional varieties of Arabica long grown in the region. Yirgacheffe coffees, like this certified organic example, processed by the wet or washed method (fruit skin and pulp is removed before drying) express floral and citrus notes with particular intensity. Olympia Coffee Roasters is a small-batch wholesale and one-location-retail roasting company with a youthful, no-nonsense style and a commitment to high quality organic coffees. Visit
Who Should Drink It : For those who seek the classic floral and fruit character of washed Yirgacheffe.
