Lately at PT’s Coffee, we have noticed that when it rains, it really pours. We were ecstatic when we won Roaster of the Year from Roast Magazine. The subsequent 95 from Coffee Review for Finca Kilimanjaro seemed to top off everything. And now, just a week after the 95 for Finca Kilimanjaro, we received another 95 for our Organic Ethiopia Sidamo, Special! If there is anything more than icing on the cake, this is it. Maybe the candles?

 

Ethiopia Sidamo is one of the best coffees we have seen selling for under $20 a pound. If you would like a taste of what is possible with an Ethiopian coffee without paying $50 a pound, here is your opportunity.

 

Here is Ken David’s review:

 

Blind Assessment: Complex aroma: distinct strawberry and table grape notes; hints of nut and cocoa. In the cup well-integrated acidity, lightly syrupy mouthfeel, and extraordinary flavor: wine-like and grapy but fresh; think nouveau Beaujolais, supported by ripe strawberry and cocoa. Long, sweet, cleanly grape- and strawberry-toned finish. Only a very, very slight salty unevenness in the cups discouraged an even higher rating for this striking coffee.

Who should drink it:
Anyone curious about the tremendous potential of the new dried-in-the-fruit coffee types. And despite the unusual preparation and very light roast, this is an immediately pleasing, accessible cup.”
