Blind Assessment: Sweetly nut-toned, original. Lavender, walnut, black peppercorn, date, cocoa powder in aroma and cup. Gentle, crisp acidity; lightly syrupy mouthfeel. Piquant, sweet lavender, cocoa powder and date are together supported by walnut in the rich, deeply layered 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. The WestBean is a San Diego-based roastery founded by two friends with a passion for coffee and a determination to bring their customers the highest quality hand-crafted coffee possible.

The Bottom Line: An intriguingly composed Ethiopia cup, with walnut notes enveloping spicy florals and sweet cocoa.
