With Milk: 8
Roast (Agtron): (50/60) Full city
Origin: Yirgacheffe growing region, southern Ethiopia.
OVERALL RATING: 92
Notes: Yirgacheffe is a coffee region in southern Ethiopia that produces distinctively floral- and fruit-toned coffees from traditional varieties of Arabica long grown in the region. Yirgacheffe coffees like this one 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. Based in Hong Kong, Fresh is a micro roaster committed to offering artisanal. small batch coffees freshly roasted to your order. vist hkcoffee.com or www.fairtaste.com.hk for more information.
Blind assessment: Evaluated as espresso. Crisp with ripe citrus and dark cocoa notes that carry persuasively and pleasingly from aroma to short milk. The body is light to medium in weight, but smoothly lively in mouthfeel. The lemon-orange-chocolate notes persist deeply into the long finish. Delicate in two parts milk, with the chocolate tendency predictably sweetening.
Who should drink it: A fine and versatile interpretation of the precious Yirgacheffe character as single-origin espresso.
Coffee beans or ground coffee: Whole coffee beans
