    It took me a bit to dial in this dry/naturally processed Ethiopian. We loved this. Indeed, strawberry, Earl Grey, and perhaps a little holiday spice was spot on. This one was strong, smooth, and sweet.

    I think is not for everyone but if you get it right it's heaven. I made this roast 4x and 2 times it was one of the best coffees I've ever had, and 2 times it was not bad but pretty funky with some savory overtones.

    Ethiopians can be so delicate and floral, so you really have to take the edge of this natural one.

    Cupping Method:Best Chemex pourover was about 207 degrees, and a slow pour. I think 3 weeks helped with degassing/settling the beans.
