This is our highly touted Ethiopian specialty coffee blend, roasted light to medium to maintain the delicate fruit and floral floral aromatics. This blend creates a sweet, deep, balanced dark chocolate, grapefruit, crisp flowers – lavender, freesia – in aroma. This Ethiopian coffee has a silky mouth feel; crisp, deeply flavor-saturated finish, and maintains its complexity into three parts milk, untamed and fruit-forward. The fudgy chocolate is traditional but the bright, complex; exhilarating fruit is strictly in the new American mode.
Yirgacheffe is a coffee region in southern Ethiopia that produces distinctive coffees from traditional varieties of Arabica long grown in the region. Yirgacheffe coffees like this one are processed by the wet or washed method (fruit skin and pulp is removed before drying) typically express great aromatic complexity and intensity with a particular emphasis on citrus and floral notes. This coffee is sustainably grown. Black Drop Coffee Roasters’ vision is simple: “Choose only the best coffees” through sourcing and roasting the best and most unique coffees available and rewarding the farmers who grow those coffees with fair premiums.
Who Should Drink It: An all-around spectacular espresso blend, immense in dimension and aromatic range in the straight shot, and more than capable of maintaining its distinction even in tall milk.
