Blind Assessment: High-toned, crisply sweet-tart. Apricot, cocoa nib, Meyer lemon zest, cedar, lilac in aroma and cup. Sweetly tart structure with juicy, vibrant acidity; full, satiny mouthfeel. The finish centers around notes of apricot and cocoa with lilac undertones.
Notes: Southern Ethiopia coffees like this one are produced from traditional Ethiopian varieties of Arabica long grown in the region. It was processed by the wet or washed method (fruit skin and pulp are removed before drying). Organic and fair trade certified.

The Bottom Line : A classic washed process Yirgacheffe cup: juicy and bright with citrus and stonefruit notes throughout and a cocoa throughline.
