Ethiopia Limu Dry-Process

We kept this roast quite light, more so that we normally would for a dry-process Ethiopia coffee. But this Limu isn't your typical DP Ethiopia flavor profile. It has lighter body, herbal bright notes, lemon balm. It's not a super intense Ethiopia (like our DP Koratie or Dale coffees are). But with a lighter roast treatment some subtle complexities come out, unhindered by an overbearing bittersweetness from the roast. At one tasting I had a lot of honey sweetness, but overall it's not a very sweet coffee. It's quite dry in fact. I cupped it while traveling a few days later and other cuppers were commenting on they dry fruit finish (not dried fruit). It's unusual, and I think it has to do with regional Limu origin character. -Tom
