Blind Assessment: Richly spice-toned, chocolaty. Dark chocolate, peppercorn medley, dried persimmon, gardenia, singed oak in aroma and cup. Sweet-toned structure with mild acidity; satiny, surprisingly full mouthfeel. Crisp, cocoa-laden finish with gardenia and persimmon as supporting undertones.
Notes: Coffees from the Yirgacheffe region are produced from distinctive traditional Ethiopian varieties of Arabica long grown in the region. Like virtually all southern Ethiopia coffees, this coffee is produced by villagers on small garden plots interplanted with food and other subsistence crops. Processed by the wet or washed method (fruit skin and pulp are removed before drying). Mystic Monk Coffee is a small-batch roaster associated with a Carmelite monastery located in the Rocky Mountains of northern Wyoming. The monks emphasize an artisan approach to roasting and a commitment to quality. Visit www.mysticmonkcoffee.com or call 877-751-6377 for more information.
The Bottom Line: A deftly darker-roasted Yirgacheffe cup centered around notes of dark chocolate and spicy florals, with a particularly satisfying mouthfeel.
