Semi-Washed – Green
Virtually everyone had something positive to say about the aroma of this delicate, semi-dry-processed coffee: caramelly, vanilla-like, nutty. However, the comments dwindled thereafter, which supports my assessment: lively, complex nose, but no development. Solid consensus on body (medium) and acidity (soft as usual). Only two hints of fault: one cupper, who otherwise liked the coffee, found the aftertaste slightly medicinal. I thought I detected a slight grassiness in both aroma and aftertaste.
The aroma is delicate, caramelly, vanilla-like and nutty. However, no development in the cup, medium body, soft acidity. G270 Processed by the semi-dry method (the outer skin of the coffee fruit and most of the pulp is removed mechanically from the beans or seeds before they are dried).
Who Should Drink It
Medium body, soft acidity, lively nose, almost no faults but (same story) not much power either.
