This is a medium-light roast, single origin bean that brews a beautifully complex cup. I prefer light to medium roasts, not only for the boost in caffeine, but to avoid losing complexity and subtleness due to over roasting—this coffee is a prime example of why the latter is important to me.
Sourced from Oromia in Ehiopia, around 2,100 meters, brewing produces an array of complimentary dark fruit and floral aromas at first sip. As you finish your sip, the cup brings out black cherry, plumb, lemongrass, and a hint of ginger.
The interplay between the stone fruits and the ginger creates a truly remarkable experience—a richness and silky smoothness all in one.
My recommendation is to brew this coffee and then let it get cold in the refrigerator. To me, this was a 4/5 hot and a 5/5 cold. Regardless, I think you’ll enjoy it!
I received this bag from Mistobox, which is an excellent box subscription for any semi-adventurous coffee lover–click here to try it out! There’s also an espresso version of these beans, which I haven’t tried but would love to hear how it is if you happen to get a bag and try it out.
