Caffe Pronto Coffee Roastery
Ethiopian Yirgacheffe Wondo Worka
|Roaster Location:||Annapolis, Maryland|
|Coffee Origin:||Yirgacheffe growing region, Sidamo Province, southern Ethiopia.|
|Review Date:||December 2008|
Blind Assessment: Intense, bright aroma: tart coffee cherry, honey, a hint of fir, flowers. In the cup tartly sweet acidity, honeyish mouthfeel and flavor, with molasses, pipe tobacco and deep, rose-like floral notes. Very sweet, fruit-saturated, perfectly clean finish.
Notes: Yirgacheffe is a coffee region in southern Ethiopia that produces intensely floral- and fruit-toned 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 is removed before drying) typically express floral and tart fruit notes with particular intensity. Caffe Pronto is a cafe-roastery and espresso bar with a mission that emphasizes quality and service. Visit
Who Should Drink It: A dramatically light roast liberates both acidity and sweetness and allows an unusual honey, molasses and rose-like floral character full expression.
