Black Oak Coffee Roasters

This month’s Angels Cup comes from Black Oak Coffee Roasters.  The specific beans come from Ethiopia’s Gedeo/Yirgacheffe region from a farm called Chelelektu Mill.  I’ve previously had tasted beans from this region as well as beans from the Sidamo region of Ethiopia.


Opening the bag of beans rewards me with a sudden rush of toffee, berry, nutty and earthy aromas.  After grinding, the nutty berry aromas are accentuated as I transfer the ground beans into the Aeropress.  I was sniffing the container holding the ground beans between each transfer into the Aeropress.

The latte was exceptionally smooth.  I tasted the toffee and berry flavors with subtle strawberry aftertaste at times.  The earthy and nutty aromas linger in the aftertaste as well too.
