Sweet tangerine and jasmine aroma, balanced acidity and a soft, smooth mouthfeel. Tangerine and flowers carry into the cup along with notes of berries, apricot and mandarin. Finishes cleanly with soft fruit notes continuing in the long.
Yirgacheffe is a coffee region in southern Ethiopia that produces intensely floral- and fruit-toned 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 is removed before drying), express floral and citrus notes with particular intensity. Certified organically grown. Barefoot Coffee Roasters is an award-winning small-batch roasting company that describes itself as "a happy little cafe and roastery in the heart of Silicon Valley."
