This is the Ethiopia Hambela Dimtu Guji Espresso brought to you by Barefoot Coffee Roasters. This fully washed and Organic certified Single Origin Espresso was sourced from the growing region of Guji in Ethiopia and was produced at 2,100 meters. The cup has a delicate floral aroma with notes of cacao nibs and juicy berries.
Best espresso blend yet. My favorite, love the body and chocolate/fudge flavor. Beautiful crema, easy to dial in.
I received this two days after roast and it seemed to open up to reveal more flavors as each day went by for over a week. Has a pleasant acidity balanced by sweetness which comes across as lemon zest and berry flavors respectively as suggested by the tasting notes. Good finish.
This one was all citrus to start. A little more adjustments landed some berry notes and a bit more complexity. The sweetness is present throughout, even when the shots pulled are predominately a straight citrus. It was actually a little smoother and more enjoyable a week and a half off roast compared to just 5 days after.
Mild, but had nice hints of flavor. I would like it even more if these flavors were stronger. But it really was a smooth taste I enjoyed - great for a long-lasting cappuccino.
It was flat. There was little complexity. No intensity. Very little crema. I tried preparing it with an espresso machine and a french press. This coffee was not for me.
