Deeply sweet, fruit-forward. Ripe blueberry, cocoa, jasmine, myrrh, hazelnut butter in aroma and cup. Gentle but lively acidity; full, satiny mouthfeel. The lightly resonant finish consolidates around a cocoa-toned hazelnut.
Most Yirgacheffe coffee is prepared by the conventional wet method, in which the skin and pulp are removed from the beans or seeds before they are dried, encouraging a cleanly high-toned, often intensely floral- and citrus-toned cup. This Yirgacheffe is a “natural” or dry-processed version, however, meaning the beans/seeds were dried inside the fruit, encouraging a deeper-toned floral and fruit character. Like virtually all Ethiopia coffees, this striking and unusual coffee is produced by villagers on small, garden plots interplanted with food and other subsistence crops. Established in 2009 by Amy and Scott Angelo, Oceana brews specialty coffees that have been roasted in small batches at its roasting house and café in Tequesta, Florida. Oceana's staff is obsessed with every detail of the process, from sourcing the beans to how the coffee is poured, in order to ensure that every cup is as rich and resonant as it should be.
