Chelbessa, Yirgacheffe, Ethiopia from Neues Schwarz, Dortmund

  This is the first coffee I tried from Dortmund based roasters Neues Schwarz, and I’m blown away. I just now while sipping the last cups realizing it’s an Yirgacheffe. It’s got some of it’s typical honey sweetness and fruitiness … but much more subtle and not so much in your face. What makes this Chelbessa special to me is its complexity and very individual characteristics. It reminds me much of a good cup of Darjeeling tea with some floral aspects and stone fruit with it.

I gonna get this back for the summer to try it as an iced coffee which should be able to compare well to an yummy unsweetened iced tea.
