One of our more beloved coffees, Ethiopia Biloya, is not just a hit with us here at PT’s. Mark Prince of CoffeeGeek.com is apparently as infatuated with it as we are. He wrote about his experience on his site. He made me want to drink a cup 🙂
He’s not the only one who had something to say about Biloya this month. Coffee Review chose to review natural African coffees for the month of November and we made the cut! Here are some of his cupping notes-
“A dry-processed or “natural” coffee, meaning the beans were dried inside the fruit rather than after the fruit has been removed, as is the case with wet-processed or “washed” coffees. A soft cup, rather simple aromatically but “well-balanced” (co-cupper Miguel Meza, 91) and “smooth and deep in structure” (Ken, 91). Miguel finds “berries, citrus and chocolate,” Ken reads some quiet chocolate and perhaps some orange. The finish is quiet but impressive with continued chocolate and fruit (Miguel: strawberry and cherry) notes.”
As you can see, this is an extraordinary coffee, worthy of note. If you haven’t had the opportunity to try it yet, I highly recommend getting you hands on some before it’s gone. It’s one of the best coffees I have ever had the pleasure of tasting in my life…and I am not just saying that. It’s truly amazing!
