Ethiopia Sidamo Natural
Cupping Notes: Berries. Sweet. Dark chocolate.
Details: A dry processed coffee, where the fruit dries around the beans, originating in the south-central mountains south of Addis Abada. Hands down our best natural Ethiopian this year. It displayed the highly sought berry notes that can come from this region and process. The Grade 3 distinction means the coffee was triple hand sorted and more defects were removed resulting in a better cup than the traditional Grade 4. At a light roast the Guji delivered overwhelming fruitiness, sweet and syrupy strawberry, cherry flavors with blueberry tones and chocolate-citrus notes at the finish.
