Blind Assessment: Delicately sweet, high-toned, citrusy. Key lime, cocoa nib, strawberry, freesia-like flowers, cedar in aroma and cup. Sweetly tart structure with juicy, vibrant acidity; lush, creamy mouthfeel. The finish consolidates to sweet fruit notes (berries and citrus) and cocoa nib.
Notes: Certified organic. Ethiopia coffees like this one are produced largely from local, indigenous varieties of Arabica. Produced by smallholding members of the Nano Challa Cooperative and processed by the wet, or washed, method (fruit skin and pulp are removed before drying). Paradise Roasters specializes in micro-lot Arabica and Robusta coffees from Asia and other emerging origins. The company prides itself on quality and freshness, craft-roasting coffees in small batches only after orders are placed. Visit www.paradiseroasters.com or call 763-433-0626 for more information.
The Bottom Line : A particularly fruit-driven cup for a washed-process Ethiopia: lively, juicy, resoundingly bright.
