Blind Assessment: High-toned, floral-driven, lyrically sweet. Wisteria, Keemun tea, white nectarine, fresh-cut basil, pink peppercorn in aroma and cup. Impeccably crystalline, balanced structure with buoyant acidity; delicately satiny mouthfeel. Very long, integrated, satisfying finish, with fruit and floral notes singing into the long.
Notes: This exceptional coffee was selected as the No. 2 coffee on Coffee Review’s list of the Top 30 Coffees of 2021. Produced by Faysel Yonis entirely of the Kurume variety of Arabica and processed by the anaerobic washed method (fermentation occurs in a hermetically sealed vessel). Barrington Coffee is an artisan roaster dedicated to elite coffees, fresh delivery and roasting that foregrounds the coffee and not the roast.

The Bottom Line: An elegant, exquisitely balanced single-variety Ethiopia cup fermented anaerobically, then double-washed, for a pure expression of flowers and fruit.
