Blind Assessment: Crisply sweet, delicately fruit-toned. Blueberry, baking chocolate, oak, agave syrup, magnolia in aroma and cup. Sweet structure with gentle, round acidity; crisp, velvety mouthfeel. Blueberry and baking chocolate lead the short finish, with magnolia returning in the long.
Notes: Yirgacheffe is a coffee region in southern Ethiopia that produces distinctive coffees largely from indigenous varieties of Arabica long grown in the region. This is a “natural” or dry-processed version (beans are dried in the whole fruit). Indaba Coffee is a small family-owned business in the heart of Spokane, Washington whose mission is “radical hospitality.” Visit www.indabacoffee.com for more information.
The Bottom Line: A straight-ahead natural-process Yirgacheffe with classic blueberry top notes and pleasing chocolate undertones.
