Blind Assessment: Deeply sweet, intricately rich. Raspberry, sandalwood, tangerine zest, honeysuckle, a hint of cinnamon in aroma and cup. Elegant, juicy acidity; plushly smooth mouthfeel. The long, confident finish leads with raspberry notes, then consolidates to crisp sandalwood and tangerine zest in the long.
Notes: Yirgacheffe is a coffee region in southern Ethiopia that produces distinctive coffees from traditional varieties of Arabica long grown in the region. This is a “natural” or dry-processed version, meaning the beans were dried inside the fruit, encouraging a flavor profile that is less predictable and deeper than the more familiar wet-processed floral- and citrus-toned Yirgacheffe profile. Founded in 2006, Very Famous International Co., Ltd. is a Taiwan-based specialty coffee roaster. For more information, email [email protected] or visit http://www.facebook.com/civetcoffeetea.
The Bottom Line: A pretty natural Yirgacheffe, made even more enticing by a hint of cinnamon spice in both the nose and cup.
