|Review Date:||April 2018|

Blind Assessment: Multi-layered, intricate. Raspberry, chocolate fudge, lavender, vanilla, rum cordial in aroma and cup. Sweetly tart in structure with fruit-toned acidity; lightly syrupy mouthfeel. The finish is crisp and richly drying, with notes of chocolate and lavender in the short and fruit-infused rum in the long.
Notes: This coffee tied for the third-highest rating in a cupping of coffees roasted by women for Coffee Review‘s April 2018 tasting report. Yirgacheffe is a coffee region in southern Ethiopia that produces distinctive coffees from traditional varieties of Arabica long grown in the region. This is a “natural” or dry-processed version, meaning the beans were dried inside the fruit, encouraging a flavor profile that is less predictable and deeper than the more familiar wet-processed floral- and citrus-toned Yirgacheffe profile. Argyle Coffee Roasters aims to provide people the opportunity to drink better coffee through education, outreach, and creating connections. Visit www.argylecoffeeroasters.com for more information.
The Bottom Line : An elegant natural-processed Yirgacheffe cup, complex with rich fruit and chocolate throughout.
