Gently bright; discreetly exotic. Honeysuckle, mango, lemon curd, walnut, a hint of myrrh in aroma and cup. Brisk but juicy acidity; light, satiny mouthfeel. Fruit and walnut carry into a crisp, balanced finish.
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. From the Alemu washing station in Kochore, Yirgacheffe.
