Blind Assessment: Delicate, sweet-toned, gently exhilarating. Freesia-like flowers, apricot, candied orange peel, an appealing hint of brisk pine needle in aroma and cup. Sweetly tart, floral-toned acidity; velvety mouthfeel. Complex fruit notes dominate in a balanced finish.
Notes: Yirgacheffe is a coffee region in southern Ethiopia that produces distinctive 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 are removed before drying) typically express great aromatic complexity and intensity with a particular emphasis on floral notes. Like virtually all Ethiopia coffees, this coffee is produced by villagers on small, garden plots interplanted with food and other subsistence crops.

Who Should Drink It: A delicate but gently intense version of the great, always intricate Yirgacheffe profile.
