Am definitely buying again. Mexican Chiapas was my favorite but now I think this is. Idk I just may have to buy both. Hopefully you’ll have the Mexican back in.
We Enjoyed the Mexico limited and cant wait to try the Ethiopian - good value - but unfortunately a little to costly for daily drinking for us
I usually don't like light roasted coffee, as the acidity and sour notes are not my favorite. However I've always heard from a friend that some of the Ethiopian varietals have a blueberry flavor without being sour. This coffee had such an interesting blueberry hint, that at first I thought it might even be a flavored coffee. But it doesn't have the typical sour acidic taste. it's not as full body as a dark of course, but I will definitely keep this in my rotation. So far the only light roast I like.
What a wonderful coffee! Just lovely to have an Ethiopian that isn't over roasted. Way to go--thank you!
