Blind Assessment: Richly fruit- and floral-toned. Blueberry, gardenia, dark chocolate, orange zest, a hint of thyme in aroma and cup. Sweet-savory with gently fruity acidity; full, satiny-smooth mouthfeel.The finish consolidates to notes of blueberry and dark chocolate with undertones of thyme.
Notes: A blend of coffees from Ethiopia's Guji growing region, which is nestled next to the better-known Yirgacheffe and Sidamo and shares their devotion to the distinctive, largely indigenous varieties of Arabica long grown in these regions. This is a “natural” or dry-processed version (dried in the whole fruit). Green Stone Coffee is a woman-owned artisan roastery in Taipei, Taiwan founded in 2016 and specializing in sourcing distinctive coffees that express their individual terroirs.

The Bottom Line: An easygoing, cleanly fruit-forward natural-processed cup with big floral notes and delicate citrus and herb suggestions.
