Blind Assessment: (As brewed in a Keurig B70 Platinum single-serve brewing device using a Keurig-compatible UpShot capsule containing 10 grams of coffee to produce a 6-ounce serving). Deep, round. Baker’s chocolate, fresh-cut cedar, apricot, a hint of flowers in aroma and cup. Round, low-toned acidity; lightly syrupy mouthfeel. The finish consolidates around a rich though mildly drying cedar note.
Notes: Sidamo (also Sidama) is a coffee-growing region in southern Ethiopia that produces distinctive coffees from traditional varieties of Arabica long grown in the region. Mystic Monk Coffee is a small-batch roaster associated with a Carmelite monastery located in the Rocky Mountains of northern Wyoming. The monks emphasize an artisan approach to roasting and a commitment to quality. Visit www.mysticmonkcoffee.com or call 877-751-6377 for more information.
Who Should Drink It : Not a characteristic Ethiopia cup, but appealingly deep with crisp baker’s chocolate and cedar notes.
