High-toned, crisply sweet-tart. Lemon zest, cocoa nib, freesia-like flowers, apricot, fresh-cut oak in aroma and cup. Tart-leaning structure with juicy, vibrant acidity; crisp, satiny mouthfeel. A resonant finish centers around lemon zest and cocoa nib.
This coffee earned the highest rating in a cupping of single-origin coffees available in U.S. supermarkets for Coffee Review’s February 2020 report. Purchased at a Whole Foods Market in Berkeley, California. Processed by the washed method (fruit skin and pulp are removed before drying). Counter Culture was founded as a roastery in North Carolina in 1995 and has since expanded to 13 training centers across the U.S. Visit www.counterculturecoffee.com for more information.
A classic Ethiopia profile: cocoa- and citrus-toned. Given the distinction of the coffee, an outstanding value.
