ORIGIN: Kochere District, Yirgacheffe
VARIETAL: Wild/Heirloom

PROCESS: Natural
ROAST: Medium
BREW METHOD: French Press



A focused chocolatey earthen goodly bit. Whimsical berries. Rich, bright, respectively. Shadows land in the cocoa, thrown by the berries. Some compost lilt to earth. Deep. Nuanced. I'm ahead of myself. We'll circle-back. Foggy complexion. Brick-reddish tint around the rim and in the depths. 

Noses to chocolate & pepper-spice notes. Black pepper, a cinnamon hint. OK! Chocolate | earthen delineations are made on the sip via pepper-spices. Very well structured, that. There is a savory element to the middlings which slowly rounds out that section -- albeit in a vague and nigh singular manner. Some pepper gets down there. A hint of a hint at licorice.

Finishes in a lip-smacking beefy manner I just don't see in most Ethiopians. Well-structured, yes -- & tethered by way of deep nuance. Complexities are somewhat lacking. Balance is quite nice. An excellent body remains the selling point -- velour throw-pillow. It's red no burgundy, the pillow. It's a kinda sexy fancy pillow... a pillow for a sexy fancy room. Unfortunately, the rest of the room is mainly unfurnished.
