Blind Assessment: Savory-sweet, intensely aromatic and flavor-saturated. Dried red plum, amber, teriyaki sauce, cocoa nib, pink peppercorn in aroma and cup. Savory-tart structure with fruit-toned, focused acidity; rich, syrupy mouthfeel. The crisp finish consolidates to notes of teriyaki and cocoa nib.
Notes: This exceptional coffee was selected as the No. 3 coffee on Coffee Review’s list of the Top 30 Coffees of 2021. Produced at Finca La Natura entirely of the Ethiopian-derived Wush Wush variety of Arabica, and processed by a proprietary natural method that includes ferment of the whole fruit with selected native yeasts in a temperature-controlled environment before drying. SÖT Coffee Roaster, based in Osaka, Japan, is a self-described Swedish-style roaster with an “aggressively light” roasting style. For more information, visit www.sotcoffee.com.
The Bottom Line: An exciting, intensely distinctive coffee for sensory adventurers: Rich umami flair enveloped in sweet-tart fruit with shifting, intricate aromatics.
