NOTES: Pleasingly smooth with notes of dark chocolate and subtle hints of blackberry.
BACKGROUND: This lot is sourced from the Harrar region of Ethiopia. Harrar is an ancient economic and spiritual hub that connects eastern Africa to the Arabian peninsula, and is almost certainly the city where the first non-Africans would have first tasted coffee. As such an important economic and spiritual crossroads, coffees from Harrar gave it a great deal of importance in the early history of coffee. Lots from the Harrar region have been well-known for their fruit-forward notes, and we think you’ll find this offering to be no exception.
