Blind Assessment: Deeply and richly floral-toned, complicated by crisp roasted cacao nib, orangy citrus and hint of gin-like spirits. Rich, deeply expressed acidity; syrupy but lively mouthfeel. Flavor consolidates in a rich, slightly drying finish.
Notes: A “natural” or dry-processed coffee, 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 southern Ethiopia profile.

Who Should Drink It: Fine and distinctive version of the newer dried-in-the-fruit Ethiopia style, with a slight shimmer of ferment enlivening a richly and cleanly floral- and cacao-toned cup.
