Ethiopia Yirgacheffe Kochere Gutiti - Coffee Review

The other day, I was lucky enough to be given (thanks Suz) some coffee from The Roasting Party... The Roasting Party is the roastery that roasts the coffee for the cafe that I currently work in, so I know their product quality, and was excited to try a new coffee.

I will be the first person to admit that Ethiopian coffee is not my favourite beans. I am more of a Costa Rican, Guatemalan kind of gal. But nether the less I was excited to try this coffee and I was pleasantly surprised...

Anyone else bothered by the fact the top wasn't cut straight?! Aesthetic ruined.

I brewed it over a V60, and of course into my death before decaf mug. 

The recipe I used to brew: 

Grind: Medium Fine
Grams: 18G
Water: 250ML + 85 Degrees
Time: 3 Minutes
Bloom: 35 Seconds

Tasting Notes (From Bag): Intense fruit, orange juice, chocolate, with complex light floral notes.

Tasting Notes (My brew): 
Aroma: Floral, citrus 
Acidity: Tangy, with a clean finish
Body: The body was definitely light, the flavour didn't linger on the tongue once again, a clean finish
Flavour: Fruity notes, definitely citrus, chocolatey after taste. 

In my opinion, it's definitely a coffee worth trying. I really wasn't expecting a lot but I was very pleasantly surprised, and it'll definitely be a coffee I'll reach for in the next few weeks. 

Tip: Always try new things, you might shock yourself.
