Blind Assessment: Richly sweet, deeply berry-toned. Dried blueberry, rhododendron, lime zest, dark chocolate, cedar in aroma and cup. Sweet-toned structure with gentle, round acidity; very syrupy mouthfeel. The finish consolidates to notes of dried blueberry and dark chocolate with cedar undertones.
Notes: Most coffees from the Yirgacheffe region are produced from distinctive, largely indigenous Ethiopian varieties of Arabica long grown in the region. Processed by the natural method (dried in the whole fruit). Founded in 1994, Coffee By Design is a specialty coffee roaster in Portland, Maine that also operates three coffee shops in town.

The Bottom Line: A berry-bomb of an Ethiopia natural: clean, juicy, richly sweet.
