NOTE: All of our premium Arabica coffees are roasted to City+ to Full City roasts, showing minimal-to-no surface oils….we want all of the flavor to stay in the beans until the coffee is ground! Despite the additional descriptors, the first flavor and aroma you'll think of is "COFFEE".

Ok, so what's in a description of Ethiopian coffee? In the pre-ECX (Ethiopia Coffee Exchange) era, a designation might include the sub-region, town, and actual farm name. Nowadays many of the pooled lots of parchment coffee which go through the auction have a "generic" tag like this one...Grade 2 washed...which have no specific attributes other than the quality-by-defect and/or size grading. Importers buy the coffee based on cupping of pre-shipped lots, and occasionally there are true standouts, like this one. I'm calling it special because it is one of the most exceptional I have tasted in years, jam-packed with fruit and richness in the cup. This is Sidamo region coffee at its finest in any preparation.

"Sumatra Triple Pick Lintong There's a swamp mud jungle funk going on here. Aromatically, Doctor Livingston's cherries have fallen out of his knapsack and lie among the moldering leaves, next to a bog. An Irish peat bog. Lightly singed. In Sumatra. Go figure. That smoky peat-water thing carries to the body - ROBUST I believe is the word. Sweet, voluptuous presentation quickly yields to the gripping, chunky tannins wrapped in licorice that dominate the midpalate. Longgggg finish spiked with orange rind, cardamon,wood shavings, and leaf mould. This is potent stuff. Diane can't drink it. (She loved the Etheopian Mothership.) My inner orangutan, however, loves it. Thanks Badbeard!"
