It is said that absence makes the heart grow fonder. Yes, we would agree. And so we are happy for the return of Ethiopian Harrar.
This is a truly unique coffee and there isn’t another region quiet like Harrar.
Grown near the town of Harrar in the Eastern Highlands of Ethiopia this is a natural (sometimes referred to as dry) processed coffee. And it is in the processing of the coffee where part of the magic happens. Because the fruit of the coffee cherry remains on the bean post-harvest the coffee bean continues to develop its flavors. As a result, the Ethiopian Harrar has intense fruity characteristics which we describe as wine-like.
Hints of blueberry are first noticed in the fragrance of the ground coffee, and then the aroma of the brewed coffee. In the cup there are notes of mocha and berry.
Ethiopian Harrar is available in the Tasting Room and for Mail Order while quantities last.
