It is typical that we are thinking of fresh crop Ethiopia as winter months turn to spring. For the past few years however we have taken advantage of an oddity in the coffee world by offering an Ethiopian lot with a bit of age on it. Coffees from Ethiopia are one of the few origins that we have seen improve with 6-9 months age.
This lot is bright and fresh with floral notes and a light sweetness. It has delicate Blackberry fruit notes and a pleasant finish. This coffee seems to be just rounding into form, a beautiful cup that was worth the wait.
