Blind Assessment: Floral and vanilla tones hover in the high-toned acidity, exciting without distracting. The acidity is authoritative despite its floral delicacy and the body surprisingly substantial, although the entire profile loses momentum in the finish.
Notes: Floral and vanilla tones hover in the high-toned acidity, substantial body. Visit www.willoughbyscoffee.com or call 800-388-8400 for more information.
Who Should Drink It: People who can't walk past a rose without sticking their noses in it. Drip-brew this coffee and enjoy it immediately, before the perfumes vanish. A Yirgacheffe like this one, with its complex floral tones, has to be one of the world's most striking coffees.
