Blind Assessment: Crisp, spicy, orange-toned. Spice box, black currant, orange, cocoa, a hint of sweet flowers in aroma and cup. Sweet-tart structure with a briskly savory edge; full, plump mouthfeel. Rich and round in the finish: orange, blackberry, a continued hint of flowers.
Notes: Produced by smallholding farmers from selections of indigenous landrace varieties of Arabica and processed by the traditional washed method (fruit skin and flesh are removed from the beans before they are dried). Cup to Cup Coffee Roasters, “Where One Cup Leads to Another,” was founded by coffee enthusiast James Spano in 2009 as a specialty roastery. A retail location was added in 2016.

The Bottom Line: A crisply brisk style of washed Ethiopia, roasted toward the dark end of medium, with more spice than flowers and savory berry balanced by orangy cocoa.
