Blind Assessment: Intense, elegant. Mint, lilac-like flowers, dark chocolate, pungent juniper berry in aroma and cup. Sweetly brisk, complexly expressed acidity; lightly syrupy, lively mouthfeel. Chocolate in particular carries into a rich though drying finish.
Notes: Yirgacheffe is a coffee region in southern Ethiopia that produces distinctively floral- and fruit-toned coffees from traditional varieties of Arabica long grown in the region. This is a “natural” or dry-processed Yirgacheffe, meaning the beans were dried inside the fruit, encouraging a flavor profile that is lower-toned and more pungent than the more familiar wet-processed floral- and citrus-toned profile. The West Bean is a San Diego-based roastery founded by two friends with a passion for coffee and a determination to bring their customers the highest quality hand-crafted coffee possible.

Who Should Drink It: Exhilarating range of sensation in this moderately dark-roasted Yirgacheffe, ranging from perfumy lilac to juniper-like pungency.
