Ethiopia Yirgacheffe Wote Konga
|Roaster Location:||Seattle, Washington|
|Coffee Origin:||Yirgacheffe growing region, southern Ethiopia.|
|Est. Price:||$17.25/12 ounces|
|Review Date:||September 2012|
Spicy floral notes (lavender, tea rose), dark chocolate, honey, hazelnut, and a pungent mango-like fruit in aroma and cup. Rich, juicy acidity; full, syrupy mouthfeel. The finish is bittersweet and drying in the short, but flavor and sweetness reassert themselves in the long.
Most Yirgacheffe coffee is prepared by the conventional wet method, in which the skin and pulp are removed from the beans or seeds before they are dried, encouraging a cleanly high-toned, often intensely floral- and citrus-toned cup. This Yirgacheffe is a "natural" or dry-processed version, however, meaning the beans/seeds were dried inside the fruit, encouraging a flavor profile more pungent than bright though still extravagant in its floral-toned aromatics. Like virtually all Ethiopia coffees, this striking and unusual coffee is produced by villagers on small, garden plots interplanted with food and other subsistence crops. Victrola is a small-batch, hands-on roaster with a passionate commitment to quality and distinctiveness. Visit www.victrolacoffee.com or call 206-624-1725 for more information.
