The aroma coming off of this Ethiopia Aramo is a sweet one; and fragrant, too. Roasted cocoa nibs and vanilla cream mix with more prevalent notes of bright strawberry, rose water, and honeysuckle.
The flavor follows the nose; this is a light-bodied coffee with a lightly syrupy mouthfeel. But, for as light as it is, it’s deep and richly complex. It’s fruit-forward, with a deep, floral-toned acidity. Honeysuckle, watermelon, strawberry, hints of pungent sandalwood and roasted cacao nib in aroma and cup. Fruits multiply as the cup cools in temperature – apricot, nectarine, lychee, and fresh mango are some that come to mind. Flowers and a rather chocolaty cacao nib in particular carry into a bitter finish.
