This is the Ethiopia Misty Valley brought to you by 1000 Faces Coffee. Grown by the various small holder producers in the Yirgacheffe region at 1,750 - 1,950 meters, this full natural coffee is a perfect example of why we love coffees from Ethiopia. This coffee is complex and nuanced, with notes ranging from fresh berries to lavender and finishing with a silky chocolaty finish.
It was alright...it was complex, but in a bland sort of way...hmmmm
liked this coffee a lot. fruit notes without being too sweet and definitely not bitter
Definitely one of my favorites so far.
Good quality. But a but more fruity (both taste and aroma) than I generally prefer.
Too fruity for my taste! I'm looking for something a bit more robust.
This is a really solid coffee. Its body is smooth and mouthfeel is silky, and it certainly has an impressive range of detectable flavors - I definitely get the lavender and blueberry as suggested on the bag, but I'd also say it tastes and feels a lot like dried rosemary.
I played around with the grind a bit, but it's pretty easy to muddle this cup with a slightly off grind or bean:water ratio. Only when I bypassed the filter and added a little more water than the brew guide suggests was I really able to separate the flavors.
I dig it, but it's not my absolute forever jam. I definitely appreciate coffee that is lighter and nuanced like tea, but I may be partial to less tannic/drying cups of coffee.
