Batdorf & Bronson
Organic Ethiopia Sidamo Moredocofe
|Roaster Location:||Olympia, Washington|
|Coffee Origin:||Sidamo growing region, southern Ethiopia.|
|Review Date:||September 2008|
Blind Assessment: A light floral aroma mingles with hints of tangy fruit as well as sweet toast and nuts. Bright, balanced, somewhat winy acidity, lean but silky mouthfeel. Complex flavors combine mild citrus, jasmine, and berries with roasted nuts, chocolate and a hint of juniper. A sweet baker's chocolate finish lingers.
Notes: This coffee is certified organically grown and Rainforest Alliance certified, meaning it was produced following sustainable ecological and socio-economic criteria developed by the Sustainable Agricultural Network, a coalition of independent, environment-focused non-governmental organizations. Southern Ethiopia coffees like this one, processed by the wet or washed method (fruit skin and pulp is removed before drying) typically express distinct floral and citrus notes. Batdorf & Bronson is a leading wholesale quality-oriented specialty roaster with operations in both Olympia, Washington and Atlanta, Georgia.
