Yirgacheffe — Banko Dhadhato — Fair Trade Organic

Roast: Medium to Medium Dark

HRR cupping notes:  OUTSTANDING!  This is a coffee that we would say all other coffees could take some pointers from.  This is one of our favorites.  This unassuming bean will surprise you from the first sip and every one thereafter.  Its sweet aroma will fill the house.  The initial blast of flavor will treat you to a flavor explosion of numerous bright, exciting, and wonderful fruits.  Some might think that such an little bean couldn’t possibly have any more to give, and most other beans can’t maintain this initial intensity;  however, that is not the case here. It follows with a perfect mix of creamy milk and dark chocolates that would make any chocolatier jealous.  The smooth, velvety finish lets you down easily and prepares you for that next, inevitable sip.  This coffee will look you in the face and say, “You’re welcome” as the tears roll down your cheeks while looking at the bottom of your empty cup.
