Ethiopia: Shakiso Natural

Berry. Brown Sugar. Fruit Punch.

This Ethiopian natural processed coffee from the farms surrounding the town of Shakiso in the Guji region is a great example of the fruity depth and complexity that comes with great natural processed coffees. Ethiopia, along with being the birthplace of coffee, has also perfected the art of natural processing (drying the coffee cherries whole rather than removing the skin and flesh). This coffee has a juicy body, a medium tamarind acidity, and a wide range of fruits including raspberry, cherry, peach, mango. All of this gives it a general fruit punch flavor with some nutmeg and brown sugar notes. We also noticed some toasted sesame seed which lent some added complexity to this fruity coffee. This is a great one to compare with our popular Ethiopia Yirgacheffe; same country, but drastically different flavor profile.
