Blind Assessment: Very sweet, richly savory. Honey, tiger lily, fresh pipe tobacco, ginseng, date in aroma and cup. Richly sweet structure with juicy-tart acidity; Syrupy-smooth mouthfeel. Finish leads with notes of pipe tobacco and flowers.
Notes: Although Ethiopia is the botanical home of Coffea Arabica, Yemen introduced the beverage to the rest of the world in the 16th and 17th centuries, and most Yemen coffee is still grown from ancient landrace cultivars of arabica on stone-walled terraces ringing fortress-like mountaintop villages. All Yemen coffees are natural-processed, or dried in the whole fruit. EK Roast Studio is committed to presenting the beautiful flavors of finely prepared foods and carefully sourced coffees and sharing this enthusiasm with every customer.

The Bottom Line: A nuanced, multi-layered, sweetly earthy Yemen cup with honeyish herb undertones.
