Blind Assessment: Intricately layered, deeply sweet. Wisteria, cocoa nib, nectarine, amber, cashew in aroma and cup. Bright, juicy acidity; plush, syrupy mouthfeel. The resonant, flavor-saturated finish leads with notes of wisteria and nectarine, balanced by suggestions of crisp cocoa.
Notes: Southern Ethiopia coffees like this one are largely produced from distinctive traditional Ethiopian landrace varieties of Arabica long grown in the region. Processed by the wet or washed method (fruit skin and pulp are removed before drying). Kakalove Cafe is a nano-roaster located in the small city of Chia-Yi in Taiwan that strives to procure and roast the finest quality coffee.

The Bottom Line: An elegant, crisply sweet, cocoa-toned washed Yirgacheffe cup with a floral throughline.
