Blind Assessment: Gently and sweetly pungent. Mulberry, roasted cacao nib, walnut, apricot, honeysuckle in aroma and cup. Brisk, delicate, buoyant acidity; light but lively mouthfeel. Flavor consolidates but carries persuasively into a sweet-toned, slightly drying finish.
Notes: Yirgacheffe is a coffee region in southern Ethiopia that produces distinctive coffees from traditional varieties of Arabica long grown in the region. Yirgacheffe coffees like this one processed by the wet or washed method (fruit skin and pulp are removed before drying) typically express great aromatic complexity and intensity. Like virtually all Ethiopia coffees, this coffee is produced by villagers on small, garden plots interplanted with food and other subsistence crops. Uncommon Grounds is a micro-roaster based in Burlington, Vermont which offers diligently roasted specialty coffees ranging from classic to exotic.

Who Should Drink It: A pleasingly pungent and crisp version of the great Yirgacheffe profile; here deep-toned cocoa, nut and berry move forward, backgrounding the still lively floral notes.
