Blind Assessment: Pungent, deeply flavor-saturated. Honey, blood orange, black currant, rhododendron-like flowers in aroma and cup. Richly tart acidity; lightly syrupy mouthfeel. Flavor consolidates but carries far into a pungent, sweet-toned finish.
Notes: Yirgacheffe is a coffee region in southern Ethiopia that produces distinctive coffees from traditional varieties of Arabica long grown in the region. Yirgacheffe coffees like this one processed by the wet or washed method (fruit skin and pulp are removed before drying) typically express great aromatic complexity and intensity with a particular emphasis on floral notes. Like virtually all Ethiopia coffees, this coffee is produced by villagers on small, garden plots interplanted with food and other subsistence crops. Flight Coffee Co.

Who Should Drink It: A deep, resonant version of the great floral and citrus Yirgacheffe cup.
