Disclosure: Pull & Pour received coffee samples for this post, however, as always, all opinions are 100% my own.
I recently shared my thoughts on an excellent Snapchilled Colombian coffee from Brandywine and I was fortunate enough to have the opportunity to try another one from the Massachusetts roaster, George Howell. This Guduba is a washed Ethiopian coffee from Hambela Wamena district of the west Guji zone.
Every time I try a Snapchilled coffee, I am so impressed with how the flavor depth and complexity of profile come through even in a canned coffee. That is true even more so for this coffee. The fresh, crisp stone fruit notes are simply astounding. I tasted strong notes of peach with more subtle apricot notes throughout each sip. The coffee has an incredible honey sweetness from start to a lingering finish. The coffee is incredibly light with a very approachable acidity and tea-like body. It is incredibly drinkable—dare I say “crushable”—and the perfect companion on a hot summer afternoon.
The Bottom Line
I am yet again impressed with what Snapchilled can deliver. This washed Ethiopian is everything I would want in a cold coffee and the remaining few cans will be a cherished companion on some warm summer outings over the coming weeks.
