Blind Assessment: Deeply sweet, crisply herb-toned. Lemon verbena, plum, baking chocolate, hazelnut, honeysuckle in aroma and cup. Sweetly tart structure with brisk acidity; full, syrupy mouthfeel. Resonant finish with lemon verbena and baking chocolate front and center.
Notes: Southern Ethiopia coffees like this one are largely produced from distinctive indigenous Ethiopian varieties of Arabica long grown in their respective regions. Processed by the wet or washed method, in which skin and fruit flesh are removed from the beans or seeds before they are dried.

The Bottom Line: A balanced, crisply herb-toned washed Yirgacheffe cup deepened by sweet stonefruit notes.
