Barefoot Roaster's Ethiopian Harrar Illili Darartu

In a French press, there is a chocolaty impression in the mouth, which leads into a grapefruit flavor. A bit of nuttiness then comes through -- perhaps hazelnut? Finishes with a coconut component.

In a pour over, there is a syrupy sweetness on the nose, very strong and almost cherry-like, with milk chocolate hidden underneath. Nuttiness in the mouth, almost buttery in consistency. Fruit shines through, citrus flavors again, less grapfruit than in the French press, but these don't overwhelming the other components in your mouth. Light finish.
