Immaculate, complex. Mango, cinnamon, cocoa powder, white truffle, orchid-like flowers in aroma and cup. Lyrical, balanced acidity; satiny-smooth mouthfeel. The richly drying, resonant finish is compelling for its savory-umami character, leading with white truffle, then rounding to quiet cinnamon notes, with the sweet presence of orchid throughout.
Yirgacheffe is a coffee region in southern Ethiopia that produces distinctive coffees from traditional varieties of Arabica long grown in the region. Yirgacheffe coffees like this one processed by the wet or washed method (fruit skin and pulp are removed before drying) typically express great aromatic complexity and intensity with a particular emphasis on floral notes. Like virtually all Ethiopia coffees, this coffee is produced by villagers on small, garden plots interplanted with food and other subsistence crops. G1 (Grade 1) is the highest grade of Ethiopia coffee. Processed at a washing station operated by Alemayehu Berhanu. Kakalove Café is a nano-roaster located in the small city of Chia-Yi in Taiwan that strives to procure and roast the finest quality coffee.

A spectacular wet-processed Yirgacheffe with the deep, savory intrigue of umami saturating sweet floral and spice tones.
