    I thought this was easy-to-drink and very tasty. It was balanced in florality and fruitness, with white grape definitely present, and perhaps some more muted berry notes. It drank a bit more full-bodied than a lot of Ethiopians I've had recently, with some milk chocolate hints and black tea more in the background.

    Cupping Method:Hario v60 pourover at 203F. From a Rogue Wave sample size pack.

    A distinctive and well-balanced roast with a light but creamy mouthfeel. Flavor notes of milk chocolate, raspberry, and a very light floral touch.

More Details

Roast Level: Light
Light roast coffee is a delicately roasted coffee that retains more of the beans' natural flavors and characteristics. Light-roasted coffees have bright acidity, complex fruit, and floral notes. Light roast coffee does not have less caffeine than darker roasts because caffeine levels remain stable during roasting.
Bean Source Country: Ethiopia
Widely regarded as the birthplace of coffee, Ethiopia boasts diverse and complex flavors, from bright, floral, and citrusy in Yirgacheffe to wine-like and berry-toned in Sidama. The country's heirloom varieties, combined with unique processing methods, make Ethiopian coffee truly distinctive and sought-after by enthusiasts worldwide.
Bean Source Region: Oromia
Coffee from Ethiopia's Oromia region, encompassing famed areas like Sidamo, Yirgacheffe, and Limu, is celebrated for its exceptional Arabica beans. Known for their complex flavor profiles, these coffees blend floral and fruity notes, often featuring hints of citrus, jasmine, and bergamot, coupled with bright acidity and a light to medium body. The beans' quality is greatly influenced by Oromia's high altitude (1,500 to 2,200 meters), fertile soil, and favorable climate, which collectively slow the maturation process, resulting in a uniquely balanced and nuanced cup.
