This coffee comes from a privately owned farm and processing site in Shantawene Village, tucked away in the Bombe mountains of Ethiopia's Sidama growing region. Along with coffee from their own estate called "Daye Bensa", they are buying and processing coffee from local farmers from different growing areas nearby. This lot is a mix of coffees harvested from outgrowers around Shantawene village.
Blind Assessment: Sweetly herbaceous, citrusy. Marjoram, lemon verbena, cocoa nib, freesia, maple syrup in aroma and cup. Sweet-savory structure with crisp, winey acidity; satiny mouthfeel. The finish leads with sweet herb notes supported by cocoa nib.
