|Roaster Location:||Branford, Connecticut|
|Coffee Origin:||Yirgacheffe growing region, Sidamo Province, southern Ethiopia.|
|Review Date:||December 2008|
Blind Assessment: Heady flowers, lemon and menthol in the aroma with backgrounded suggestions of honey and butter. In the cup balanced acidity, surprisingly full body, and a continued rich complex of flowers, lemon and honey. Flavor fades rather quickly in the finish.
Notes: Its tendency to high-toned floral and citrus sweetness has made Yirgacheffe (also Yrgacheffe), from a lush range of hills in southern Ethiopia, one of the world's most distinctive coffees. Willoughby's Coffee & Tea is a pioneer specialty coffee roaster recently reinvigorated and refocused on artisan roasting and a very extensive collection of elite single-origin coffees.

Who Should Drink It: A fine example of wet-processed Yirgacheffe, with its startlingly floral and lemon aromatics nicely balanced by a honeyish richness.
