I had a great time tasting a naturally processed Ethiopia Yirgacheffe coffee with Klif and Natasha at Visions. Natural Ethiopias tend to have very bright bursting fruit flavors, and this one was full of blueberry flavor. The Coffee Catcher really gave a clean taste to the coffee, allowing the natural flavors to come through, unobstructed by sediments. Klif really got excited about the coffee as it aged. He told a colleague to "come taste the best 35 minute old coffee I think I've ever had."
