Blind Assessment:

Delicately but giddily complex. Honey, narcissus, sweet chocolate, softly tart tangerine in aroma and cup. Gentle but vibrant acidity; light but syrupy mouthfeel. Remarkably sweet and flavor-saturated though slightly drying in a long, complexly developing finish.

Notes:

Yirgacheffe coffees like this one processed by the wet or washed method (fruit skin and pulp are removed before the beans are dried) typically express great aromatic complexity and intensity with a particular emphasis on citrus and floral notes. Paradise Roasters prides itself on roasting and shipping coffee only after orders are placed. Its metaphoric mission is to bring some paradisiacal warmth from the coffee-growing south to the cool environs of Minnesota and beyond.

Who Should Drink It: Fine version of the great Yirgacheffe profile, with an emphasis on delicate sweetness and brisk, complex flowers.
