The aroma of the Ethiopia Duromina is perfumed, fragrant, and elegant, blossoming with florals, stone fruit, and citrus.
The flavor follows the nose, and the coffee’s profile is every bit as delicate and elegant as its aroma. It’s a light-bodied coffee, with a silky mouthfeel and soft citric acidity. This is a balanced, clean coffee, too; every flavor component is easily identifiable (which is great, because the flavors in this cup are beautiful). It’s a floral-forward coffee with dominant flavors of peach blossom and oolong tea. There isn’t much in the way of sugary sweetness in this cup besides some light honey nuances, but those floral flavors are backed up by a flood of juicy peach, watermelon, and Meyer lemon which play through a clean finish.
