The aroma of the Ethiopia Limu is sweet and fragrant with scents of cocoa, citrus, and florals.
The flavor follows the nose. This is a medium-bodied coffee with a smooth, silky mouthfeel. The flavors are a little muddled – it isn’t a cup with great clarity – but it’s packed with flavor. Cocoa powder and salted caramel provide sweetness, while restrained high notes of nectarine and lime flow in over the top. As the cup cools, graham cracker comes out a bit (which, combined with the lime, make for a key lime crumble flavor) and lilac florals play through the finish.
Barefoot Coffee Roasters provided me with a quality cup of coffee in their Ethiopia Limu. Again, it wasn’t a perfect coffee – it could have had more clarity, they could have backed off on the roast heat a little bit, it could have had more of a zing (especially with its lime and nectarine flavors)… But it was still tasty and enjoyable.
And the fact that this is a good coffee with a good cause makes it that much better.
