Blind Assessment: Evaluated as espresso. Juicy, sweet-tart. Dried hibiscus, raspberry jam, cocoa nib, cedar, molasses in aroma and small cup. Plush, syrupy-smooth mouthfeel; richly tart finish. Chocolaty and pleasingly bittersweet in three parts milk, with tart floral and berry notes.
Notes: Produced by smallholding farmers from trees of the Guji, Typica and indigenous Ethiopian landrace varieties of Arabica, and processed by the natural method (dried in the whole fruit) by Aklilu and Biniam Aklilu Kassa at the Dimtu Mill. 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: A floral- and fruit-driven, deeply aromatic natural-processed Ethiopia roasted for espresso, especially appealing in the straight shot.
