Ethiopia Kilenso from Coava Coffee Roasters (MistoBox )

This is the Ethiopia Kilenso brought to you by Coava Coffee Roasters. Kilenso Mokonissa is one of the smallest villages in the Borena Hagermariam District of Sidama, Ethiopia. In the past, the coffees coming from Kilenso would have been blended into larger lots and sold under the area’s catch-all name “Ardi.” Grown between 1,750 – 1,900 meters, notes of lavender and grape jam balance this naturally processed coffee.

I have never tasted lavender, so I had no point of comparison, but I did taste what might be grape jam.; if I close my eyes and concentrate. My wife thinks she detects hints of citrus.
