Misty Valley was one of the coffees that made me understand what specialty coffee was over ten years ago when I first tried it. The dry grounds smell extremely sweet indicating the treat you are in for. There are blueberry notes that intertwine with chocolate in the cup, and the finish is creamy and sweet. You might also detect some spice tones. This cup will shine as a pour over, but be great as well in an Aeropress brewed very strong. Since the body is not thin as some Ethiopian naturals can be, the cup overall is quite satisfying brewed a number of different ways. We are going to try to roast it as a single origin espresso also if you're in the shop soon! Look forward to it!
