Blind Assessment: Delicately sweet, bright-toned. Lemon zest, rhododendron, baking chocolate, fresh-cut fir, molasses in aroma and cup. Gentle, lively acidity; light, satiny mouthfeel. Lemon zest and chocolate carry into a sweet, gently drying finish.
Notes: Southern Ethiopia coffees like this one are produced from traditional Ethiopian varieties of Arabica long grown in the region. It was processed by the wet or washed method (fruit skin and pulp are removed before drying). MK Coffee Roasters, a short walk from the Shulin train station in New Taipei City, specializes in high-quality roasted beans to take home and expertly brewed coffees to enjoy in the café.

The Bottom Line: A delicate, accessible, pretty Ethiopia cup with attractive citrus and chocolate notes.
