Gummy Bears, Tropical Smoothie, Honey, Milk Chocolate

Ethiopia plays home to more amazing coffees than state fairs do opportunities for digestive regret. Still, within Ethiopia, the name Daye Bensa looms large. Daye Bensa is one of the origin's most prominent companies, the toast of Ethiopia's Cup of Excellence, taking top slots year after year after year (last year, they took home silver). But even among their reliably exceptional offerings, this brew stands out. Why? Because it is composed entirely of a single varietal—JARC 74158.

If you like gummy bears—or gummy bears disguised as vitamins—you'll be pleased with this brew. The bears are loud, proud, and they constant from fragrance to flavor. Trotting alongside the gummy bears is some tropical smoothie. Why smoothie? Because the contours of the fruits—guava, passion fruit, pineapple—are less important than the vibe they create: a rich, smooth, decidedly islandy tone. There's honey in the background and a coating of milk chocolate on the finish. The summary: if you like fruity, dry Ethiopian coffees, this one is a must-grab. Ditto if you're a coffee geek that jumps for single varietals.
