1. We all Taste, why do we taste?

The famous non-attributable quote goes “Writing about music is like dancing about architecture”. Don’t try to tell me who actually said it first, that’s mostly unimportant. What’s important is that writing about any sensory experience is a rather challenging endeavor. If I’m going to try to teach you about tasting something... well it would be a lot easier to just simply taste it with you. I’m sure that I could convince you that you are tasting something.

Ethiopias

With 4 offering from Ethiopia currently on the list, I thought it would be fun to cup them all together and share them with a few others to see what they thought about them all together and on their own. With two coffees from Shakiso, one from Sidama, and one from Kochere (which is also Dry Processed), we have a fairly diverse selection to look at. It was a lot of fun to watch some folks cup these coffees from warm to cool, and to see the differences begin to show up in the cup. Obviously the first detectable difference was between the washed and dry processed coffees.
