Intelligentsia \ Kurimi Ethiopia \ 12oz \ October 23, 2018

Description (from the bag) Kurimi takes it’s name - and it’s inspiration - from an Amharic reference to excellence. This year’s Kurimi delivers the mesmerizing floral aromatics that are it’s trademark flavors of honeydew melon, passionfruit, and lemon curd.

Thoughts Very tasty, light and bright. My first African coffee of the season and I’m happy to be back. Nice light fruit notes as it goes down.

Brew Method Beehouse, Stumptown recipe
