Congregation Coffee Roaster

November’s Trade Coffee comes from Congregation Coffee Roasters. The beans come from the Guji, Ethiopia. Upong receiving the bag, beans from Ethiopia tend to have a distinctive aroma… flowery, fruity and yet somewhat nutty.

From the aroma and past experiences with Ethiopian beans to make my latte, the flavor profile so far has been very similar across multiple roasters. These beans continue with the fruity, berry flavor profile in the latte. The flavors have a more berry/fruit forward taste and also tasted sweeter than the previous beans (an espresso blend). The after taste after each sip was a nice refreshing milk chocolate flavor that lingered at the back of the tongue. Ethiopian beans do not disappoint.
