Blind Assessment: Fruit-toned, delicately floral. Magnolia, plum, almond, cedar, cane sugar in aroma and cup. Crisply sweet structure with brisk acidity; silky mouthfeel. Wood-framed finish with undertones of almond and cane sugar.
Notes: Produced by smallholding farmers largely from landrace varieties of Arabica long grown in the region, and processed by the traditional washed method (fruit skin and flesh are removed from the beans before they are dried). 1980 CAFE is a specialty coffee roaster and cafe in Tainan, Taiwan.

The Bottom Line: A friendly, gently fruit- and floral-driven washed Ethiopia cup.
