    Delicious peachy, fruity Ethiopian. Has some black tea character and some chocolate (a hint mid-palate). Though it's not that complex compared to some Ethiopians, the notes it does hit are quite delicious.

    Cupping Method:At Clover Food Labs in Burlington, MA (drank it mostly iced, but got a little of the hot)

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.
