Ethiopia Guji Uraga Tome Station
Another online only exclusive coffee. We're going to settle a little on this coffee for a minute so it should stick around slightly longer than normal as it's a coffee we dig. If you liked the Mormora 2017 Good Food Award winning coffee this coffee falls into that similar world with some differences.
The first most apparent is the acidity to the coffee. I tend to run into people who in defense of not drinking they'll say coffee is too acidic. In many ways this is more code for you're still scarred from ultra dark roast coffee your grandmother made using 4x the amount of coffee one needs to use for a single cup and it destroyed your stomach. The misery of that remains similar to the first food (or alcohol) that made you super sick. So to be blunt: it's not "acidity" like that. It's a puckery type but not an oppressive sour taste.
Once you get past the first wave of the acidity there's a lot to really like. There's a fair bit of earl grey tea here which is what sends me back to the Mormora from 2 years ago along with a really pleasing sweetness. There's a not too heavy but solid body to this coffee but the floral notes really linger in this coffee on the corners of your mouth that makes for an overall nice ending to a nice Guji offering.
