Blind Assessment: Brisk, intricate. Lavender, sandalwood, kiwi, roasted cacao nib in aroma and cup. Brisk, floral-toned acidity; lightly syrupy, buoyant mouthfeel. Lavender and cocoa carry into a gently bracing, bittersweet finish.
Notes: Yirgacheffe is a coffee region in southern Ethiopia that produces distinctive coffees from traditional varieties of Arabica long grown in the region. This is a “natural” or dry-processed version, meaning the beans were dried inside the fruit. Like virtually all Ethiopia coffees, this coffee is produced by villagers on small, garden plots interplanted with food and other subsistence crops. Dragonfly Coffee is a Boulder, Colorado-based micro-roaster that produces high-quality coffees and supports worthy causes.

Who Should Drink It: Those who enjoy beverages that are both bracingly brisk and complexly floral. Dry martini drinkers, for example, or lovers of the more aromatic style of hoppy beers.
