This year’s crop feels very similar to the one we had last year, but it feels bolder in taste. 

The florals are absolutely crazy, and for us, it screams lavender. We also feel any purple flowers could be an accurate descriptor, like violet or lilac.

Usually, floral coffees mean delicate and light body: not the Shoondhisa!

It’s quite bold and round, especially for a light roast.

We also find some classic natural Ethiopian notes in the strawberry and dried apricot notes we experienced.

Silky, sweet, complex, this stellar coffee is also great because even though it’s light, it makes a very memorable espresso! Those americanos have rarely been better.
