Blind Assessment: Evaluated as espresso. Sweetly tart, fruit-toned. Tangerine zest, tamarind, cocoa powder, molasses, sandalwood in aroma and small cup. Plush, syrupy mouthfeel; chocolaty, tangy-fruit finish. The milk shot is bright, balanced, and juicy, leading with notes of cocoa powder and tamarind, rounding to molasses in the long.
Notes: Produced by Israel Degfa from trees of heirloom varieties of Arabica and processed by the natural method (beans are dried in the whole fruit). CofFeeling Coffee is based in Kaohsiung City in southern Taiwan. Visit www.coffeelingcafe.com or call +886-7-285-5300 for more information.
The Bottom Line: A complex, richly bittersweet single-origin natural-process Ethiopia espresso that emphasizes dark fruit and citrus notes supported by rich cocoa and intimations of deeply aromatic sandalwood.
