Deeply aromatic and intensely sweet. Dried blueberry, pipe tobacco, lavender, sweet cocoa, a hint of whisky in aroma and cup. Juicy, quietly vibrant acidity; velvety-smooth mouthfeel. Flavor consolidates around dried blueberry and lavender in the short finish; the whisky hint returns in the long.
Produced by the Aramo Cooperative and certified organic. Yirgacheffe is a coffee region in southern Ethiopia that produces distinctively floral- and fruit-toned coffees from traditional varieties of Arabica long grown in the region. This is a dry-processed or “natural” Yirgacheffe, meaning the beans were dried inside the fruit rather than after the fruit has been removed, as is the case with wet-processed or “washed” versions. Wonderstate Coffee, formerly Kickapoo Coffee, is an award-winning roaster based in rural Wisconsin known for their commitment to guaranteeing higher pay for farmers and being the country’s first 100% solar powered roastery.

Who Should Drink It
Fruit without the funk. Those who enjoy the aromatic resonance and depth of a fruit-toned natural-processed Ethiopia with just a hint of clean, sweet ferment.
