Sainsburys Taste the Difference Ethiopian Sidamo Coffee
Ok so it's mid afternoon and we had a few to choose from and got suckered in by the "fruity" description Mr Sainsbury had given it. The powder was a grade darker than the cheapo Lavazza we had this morning and the smell on opening was fine indeed. On delivery the smell is, well, fruity YES! lemon-like infact - as though you had just washed your cup with a dose of fairy liquid and not bothered to rinse it out. So, unappealing....possibly. But the taste, well, the citrus tint does give it a lively edge. Not sure where the apricots came in - they must be still in the packet. Interesting. Judges rating: 7/10
"This is a vibrant, fruity coffee, with sweet floral notes and hints of apricot. It's from the highlands of Ethiopia's Sidamo region, where the rich volcanic soils are renowned for producing superior tasting Arabica beans."
