Final Thoughts: I roasted this washed Ethiopian on the light side to maximize the subtle aromas and flavors inherent in this cup. Some washed Ethiopians can be closer to Kenyans on the spectrum with very complex "hit you over the head" types of flavors. This is not one of those. This Aroresa is a lot more clean, light and subtle (it's not a gesha, but think more along those lines.) The aroma is light and floral. The flavors are subtle as well - I got raspberry, lemon and what I could only describe as "red fruit" which the brokers described as strawberry. There are definitely some light floral notes, with a body that's on the light light side (sometimes described as 'tea-like" and a clean light finish with mildly lemon type acidity. If you're looking for something that's super complex and in your face, you might want to wait for the new crop of kenyans. But if something clean and light sounds interesting, this coffee should fit the bill nicely.
