Flavour Category
citrus & floral citrus & floral
High quality coffee has wide ranging, naturally occurring taste notes. The dominant flavour profile in this coffee is Citrus & Floral. Coffees in this category have zesty citrus flavours and the scent of flowers including honeysuckle, jasmin, dandelion and nettles. Often prominent in washed coffees, the traditional processing method in Ethiopia.
Roast
This coffee is a light roast. Roast level influences the flavour and body of coffee. Darker roasts are fuller bodied, lighter roasts brighter. The beans are light brown in colour (unsurprisingly), it will retain more of the natural flavour of the coffee. This can result in a higher acidity and may often show more fruit and floral notes. This roast style means the quality of the coffee shines through the best.
