Processing : Natural
Roast Level: Medium
Tasting Note: Strawberry Aroma, Black Tea Sweetness, Juicy Body, Lingering Finish
The Sidamo region of Ethiopia is within the Yirgacheffe region, so the taste profiles tend to be similar, especially in the washed coffees. But this is a natural (dry-processed) Sidamo which tends to have red berry flavors and sometimes lemon, milk chocolate, or tea-like characteristics.
This one was grown near the village of Aleta Wendo just south of Sidamo, and it is a real prize. No earthiness or astringency, but a lot of milk chocolate and a lot of fruit (namely strawberry).
You’ll find an interesting coffee with a light body, a sweet berry beginning, a medium acidity, and a clean lingering finish. A great coffee that suit’s our hot weather, sweet enough that you can drink it hot or iced, clean aftertaste, well processed, well sorted -- we are really happy with this find.
