COFFEE REVIEW SCORE: 94 Points (October 2020)
Blind Assessment: Fruit-forward, richly sweet. Berry melange (blueberry, raspberry, blackberry), chocolate fudge, sandalwood, molasses, narcissus-like flowers in aroma and cup. Sweet-toned structure with juicy acidity; creamy, viscous mouthfeel. The resonant finish centers around notes of chocolate fudge and blueberry.
Notes: Produced by farmer Asfaw Maru on his small farm in the Yirgacheffe growing region and processed by the natural method. RamsHead Coffee Roasters is a family-owned company founded by Bozeman, Montana natives Caleb and Laura Walker. RamsHead specializes in direct trade microlot coffees.
