We received a 93 point score for this coffee in May of 2010 from Coffee Review.
Strawberry, citrus, bergamot, and so very clean. Floral spicy qualities of bee balm and lily. The full gamut of citrus from lime zest and grapefruit to orange bitters, Meyer lemon and blood orange. With deep peanut and a mallow backbone on the finish.
This is it. The premier coffee to come out of Ethiopia for harvest offering in 2010. Once again, such an auspicious coffee as this has been brought to light and carefully prepared by Joseph Brodsky and his Ninety Plus Coffee program.
One of the many critical aspects of preparation that accentuates the profound fruit and berry qualities in this coffee is its method of preparation. The Nekisse has been naturally processed without any water. The coffee cherry is dried in the sun on elevated tables and the coffee seeds are extracted after the cherry has dried. In Ethiopia, the Nekisse is sealed in GrainPro barrier packaging and then sent on its way to our Roastery where we preserve the green coffee under hermetic seal until it is roasted.
This coffee is currently available for $29.95/pound.
