Blind Assessment: Crisply sweet, floral-toned. Narcissus, plum, almond, baking chocolate, a hint of bay leaf in aroma and cup. Sweet structure with round, gentle acidity; full, syrupy mouthfeel. Chocolaty and floral finish, crisp and resonant.
Notes: Certified USDA organic. 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). Ethiopia coffees processed with this method typically express great aromatic complexity and intensity, with a particular emphasis on floral notes.
