Cà phê nhân sống Sweetmaria’s Coffee Ethiopia Agaro Dalecho Cooperative – 1kg
Ethiopia Agaro Dalecho is a versatile Ethiopian coffee, able to present subtle top note complexity in lighter roasts, that when taken beyond City+ yields a much more focused cup profile, centered around sweetness, and balanced core coffee flavors. Aromatically speaking, City roasts produce a rich carameized sugar sweetness that supports a subtle jasmine tea accent.
That latter aspect carries over to the cup, and is most noticable in my roasts on the lighter side of City+. My darkest roast was near Full City (29F post 1st crack), and without the floral note, more closely approximated a somewhat fruited Colombia or Guatemalan coffee.
Process Method: Wet Process
Region: Agaro Town, Western Ethiopia
In this way, Dalecho presents a good opportunity for a reasonably priced washed blend option as well as single origin. Light roasts have a subtle lemon grass note that comes up when the coffee cools, and the sweetness shifts toward unrefined, like pressed cane juice. The espresso shot I pulled of my Full City roast was loaded with fine dark chocolate roast tones, and understated plum note in the finish. To me, this is exactly what I look for in single origin espresso, but it’s certainly a more than viable blend component that will add dark chocolatey sweetness, as well as fruited hints to your blend.
