Blind Assessment: Complexly layered with great sweetness. Ginger flower, mangosteen, frankincense, lemon zest, roasted cacao nib in aroma and cup. Vibrant, intricate acidity; lightly satiny mouthfeel. The rich, resonant finish is carried by rich, cocoa-toned florals and deep, sweet fruit notes.
Notes: From the Kochere Cooperative in Yirgacheffe, a coffee region in southern Ethiopia known for its distinctive coffees produced 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. Coava is a Portland-based coffee roaster that aims to provide quality coffee and education regarding the preparation of good coffee.

The Bottom Line: A beautifully balanced and complete wet-processed Yirgacheffe cup, lyrical in structure and sweetly inviting from aroma to finish.
