My Review of Ethiopia Aleta Wondo Natural

Originally submitted at Coffee Review

In aroma and cup soft, honey-like sweetness with round fruit tones and a hint of flowers. Bright acidity, medium body, silky mouthfeel, continued softly stated fruit and floral notes with an added hint of lemon. Finishes cleanly with a muted but rich pungency.

Definitely Worth the Dough

4out of 5

Pros: Attractive Mouthfeel/Body, Balanced Acidity, CocaCola-like cleanliness

Cons: Poorer aroma than used to

Best Uses: Manual Pour-Over/Drip

Describe Yourself: Coffee Connoisseur, Coffee Professional

I grind a bit finer on a burr grinder and use a pour-over method called the Chemex for brewing. A great coffee to wake up with, very bright. The aroma was a bit slow. The roasting process did not seem to add much to it other than hits of honey, but overall still well above average. Incredibly affordable.
