Ethiopia Yirgacheffe Kochere Grade 1
|Roaster Location:||Seattle, Washington|
|Coffee Origin:||Kochere District, southern Ethiopia.|
|Est. Price:||$11.00/8 ounces|
|Review Date:||July 2012|
Blind Assessment: Very sweet, delicate. Rose-like flowers, milk chocolate, orangy citrus, spice, savory date in aroma and cup. Soft, gently backgrounded acidity; light but syrupy-textured mouthfeel. Sweet, deeply flavor-saturated (date, rose) short finish fades slightly in the long.
Notes: The Kochere District adjoins the Yirgacheffe coffee growing region in southern Ethiopia, famous for its distinctively floral- and fruit-toned coffees from traditional varieties of Arabica long grown in the region. Yirgacheffe-style coffees like this one processed by the wet or washed method (fruit skin and pulp is removed before drying) typically express great aromatic complexity and intensity with a particular emphasis on citrus and floral notes. Victrola is a small-batch, hands-on roaster with a passionate commitment to quality and distinctiveness. Visit www.victrolacoffee.com or call 206-624-1725 for more information.
Who Should Drink It: Unusual profile for coffee adventurers: Complex, very wide-ranging aromatics with an underlying savory depth to the sweetness.
