Blind Assessment: Bright, crisp, sweetly tart. Apricot, almond, cocoa nib, cedar, honey in aroma and cup. Sweet-tart structure with juicy acidity; velvety mouthfeel. A quietly rich finish centers around apricot and honey, with cocoa nuance.
Notes: This coffee tied for the third-highest rating in a cupping of coffees from New England roasters for Coffee Review’s February 2019 tasting report. Produced by Feku Jiberil from traditional, largely indigenous varieties of Arabica long grown in southern Ethiopia. Processed by the wet or washed method (fruit skin and pulp are removed before drying). This coffee is available exclusively as a part of the Barrington Coffee Curated Collection, which includes four ounces each of three distinguished coffees for $39.95. Barrington Coffee is an artisan roaster dedicated to elite coffees, fresh delivery and roasting that foregrounds the coffee and not the roast.

The Bottom Line : A classic wet-processed Ethiopia cup: bright and vibrant, with leading notes of stone fruit and cocoa.
