Blind Assessment: Crisply spicy and intricately floral; savory-sweet. Lavender, rosemary flower, honey, roasted cacao nib in aroma and cup. Sweetly brisk acidity; light, silky mouthfeel. Cacao nib and lavender carry into sweetly resonant, flavor-saturated finish.
Notes: Certified organically grown. Worka is one of twenty-three primary cooperatives located in the Gedeo Zone of Southern Ethiopia that together make up the Yirgacheffe Farmers Union. Yirgacheffe coffees like this one processed by the wet or washed method (fruit skin and pulp is removed before drying) typically express great aromatic complexity and intensity with a particular emphasis on citrus and floral notes. 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: Bittersweet in the very best sense: simultaneously honey sweet and crisply savory, with engaging and intricate aromatic nuance. And organically grown.
