    I feel like I get two very distinct and crystal clear flavors from my cup, which are jasmine tea and grapefruit zest. Grapefruit zest meaning this coffee has bright, fragrant citrus flavor with a hint of bitterness.

    It's a very smooth and easy-to-drink coffee. Deviates fairly significantly from the grape/peach fruitiness described by the bag, and I think it takes a bit more work to appreciate.

    Cupping Method:I had this pourover at Common Good Co., a coffee shop and co-working space in Waltham, MA.

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: Yirgacheffe
Yirgacheffe, a micro-region within Sidama in Ethiopia, grows coffee highly sought after for its complex, bright, and fruity flavor profile. Yirgacheffe coffee often exhibits citrus, berries, and jasmine notes, vibrant acidity, and a delicate, tea-like body. This region mainly produces heirloom Arabica varietals, which are indigenous to Ethiopia and possess a rich genetic diversity. Some specific varietals grown in Yirgacheffe include Kurume, Dega, and Wolisho, which are revered for their distinctive characteristics and contribute to the coffee's unique taste.
