Independent Blind (they only knew it was Ethiopia) Review by Our Customer Mary:
"I just tried the Ethiopia sample that you sent - WOW!!!! It is fabelous...taste like a natural process.... lovely strawberries, raspberries, ripe blueberries, spice, and a floral quality that balances out the fruit. Reminds me of a bit of a Ethiopia Natural Aricha ...but more floral and spice.
I hope that you are already or planning to sell this. Please let me know :)
P.S. Forgot to add that the Ethiopia sample you sent had the most blueberries (flavor-wise) than most Ethiopias that I have tasted. It has been something like 6 years since I tasted an Ethiopian that had that deep profound blueberry note...like before the Ethiopia coffee market changed their auction system"
