We tasted tangerine, orange, and cinnamon in this lovely bright brew, along with a faint trail of caramel. For the super-tasters, see if you can pick up a hint of lavender! A very pleasant light roast, and easy to sip on. Sunshine in a mug.
We are proud to showcase another gem Ethiopian lot. High scoring Ethiopians like this one have been hard to find this year. We pride ourselves in cupping through 50+ lots to find the top 5 and deliver them to you. The Ethiopia Reko tastes like candied ruby red grapefruit and lemon meringue. Its very sugary, sweet, clean and piquant.

"Pour over, with a splash of cream. A lovely Ethiopian variety. Creamy, with that caramel (and maybe a hint of cinnamon if I try) notes lingering. Fruity and almost a touch sweet on the front end. " (4 out of 5)
