Blind Assessment: Delicate, vibrantly sweet. Hibiscus, roasted cocoa nib, dried mulberry, frankincense, candied orange zest in aroma and cup. Bright, juicy-tart acidity; satiny-smooth mouthfeel. Rich-toned, layered finish: dried mulberry notes in the short, cocoa-toned hibiscus in the long.
Notes: Southern Ethiopia coffees like this one are produced from traditional Ethiopian varieties of Arabica long grown in the region. It was processed by the wet or washed method (fruit skin and pulp are removed before drying). Ethiopia coffees processed with this method typically express great aromatic complexity and intensity, with a particular emphasis on floral notes. Located in the San Francisco neighborhood of Inner Richmond, Turning Point not only provides uncompromising quality, but also a personal relationship with friends and neighbors.

The Bottom Line : A crisp, delicate, tartly floral-toned coffee with particularly intriguing berry and citrus suggestions.
