Fruit Salad, Toast & Jam, Port, Candied Lemon

Wush Wush coffee has two major things going for it: the most memorable name in the specialty coffee world, and flavors that are so unique, so thoroughly inimitable, they manage to be memorable in excess of the name. The best Wush Wush brews are a carnival of flavors. They can range from fruity to sweet to herbal. This one nicely summarizes their profile.

Having spent 90 hours in anaerobic fermentation, this brews a big cup, but it retains a delicate, "refreshing" feel. The big note is fruit salad—the good kind, not the weird cantaloupe-packed deli counter variety. That tone lays against a backdrop of toast and jam, port, and some candied lemon on the finish. It's a process-forward coffee, and there are fermented notes, but it's not a craft beer brew. Instead, it's a fruit smoothie nod to the best Ethiopian naturals while tossing in a characteristically Wush Wush twist. 

If you're new to Wush Wush coffees, this is a great place to start. If you're a devotee, you'll count it among the varietals greatest hits. Coffees like this don't come around often. Grab it while it lasts.
