Organic Ethiopian Yirgacheffe Fair Trade ADADO Cooperative YCFCU Grade 2 Honey ECO Processed Lot 3 raw Arabica coffee
Bright acidity, smooth full body, fruit, sweet, brown sugar, clean, orange creamsicle, tart lemon, blackberry, floral, coconut milk, nicely balanced, sweet clean finish.
Almost sugary sweet, unexpectedly clean, consistent nice sized Yergacheffe with noticeably varying Aroma and taste characteristics affected by rate and darkness of roast. An Experienced Coffee Roaster's Dream, you can really put your mark on this coffee by how you roast it, really good to great. Interesting and complex as an Espresso, allow extra time for other brew methods due to density of this bean. I recommend you roast it fast and hot to bring out the complexity in the cup.
