Evaluated as espresso. Sweetly tart, richly chocolaty. Dark chocolate, orange zest, dried green apple, cedar, molasses in aroma and small cup. Richly drying mouthfeel; tart-leaning finish. Roundly sweet in three parts milk, which amplifies the molasses and chocolate notes.
Southern Ethiopia coffees like this one are largely produced from indigenous Ethiopian landrace varieties of Arabica long grown in the region. This is a “natural” or dry-processed version, meaning the beans were dried inside the fruit rather than after the fruit has been removed, as is the case with wet-processed or “washed” coffees. New Life Enterprises is a Hong Kong-based NGO established in 1965 that oversees more than 20 social enterprises. Its coffee brand, cafe330, is designed to serve coffee lovers and provide food and beverage training for people recovering from mental illness. Visit www.nlpra.org.hk for more information.
Tart and chocolaty in the straight shot; more brightly chocolaty and fruit-toned in cappuccino-scaled milk.
