|Roaster Location:||Minneapolis, Minnesota|
|Coffee Origin:||Yirgacheffe growing region, Sidamo Province, southern Ethiopia.|

Blind Assessment: Intense sweet-toned aroma, with complex citrus and floral character. The flowers turn distinctly toward jasmine in the cup, with a continued muted citrus and a hint of cocoaish chocolate. Bright, balanced acidity, medium body and a slightly lean mouthfeel. The quiet finish displays hints of toast and cocoa.
