Yo el Rey Roasting
|Roaster Location:||Calistoga, California|
|Coffee Origin:||Yirgacheffe growing region, Sidamo Province, southern Ethiopia.|

Berryish fruit, sweet herb, dark chocolate in the aroma. In the cup, gently rich acidity, silky mouthfeel, continued spicy, berryish fruit and a distinct cocoaish dark chocolate. Clean, sweet, rich finish with a touch of dry herby astringency in the long.

Who Should Drink It
Distinctive Yirgacheffe with a pleasingly pungent, herby edge to the chocolate and berry notes.
