Tasting Notes: Peach Rings, Honeysuckle, Meyer Lemon
This coffee comes from farmers in the Yukro kebele, who deliver ripe cherry to the Telila Washing Station. There, station owner and exporter extraordinaire, Mike Mamo and his team oversee the careful processing of day lots from each contributing village. This type of lot separation is historically unique in Ethiopia and brings some ridiculous cup clarity to the table. Mike only bought Telila in 2019, and if this shining lot is any indicator of what’s to come from their work, we’re in for a series of real treats!
The fan’s favorite, Telila’s Yukro comes back to us again as the last Ethiopian offering of the season! This year’s lot brings that classic profile you all know and love filled with citrus and florals. It exhibits a sweet jasmine fragrance that turns to honeysuckle in the aroma. Peach and lemon confection supplements a juicy body that dances on the palate and brings imagery of sipping an Arnold Palmer on a warm sunny day to mind. As we get deeper into the winter season here in Washington D.C. , this coffee prepares us for the blossoming warmth that comes with Spring and we’re soaking up every last bit.
