Cupping notes: Caramel, Nutty, Stone Fruit
Processing method: Natural (dry process)
A dry-processed African coffee that drinks like a wet-processed South American?! Sourcing this coffee was a happy accident for us. We were searching for a quintessential, loud-berry Ethiopian natural (note: see Ethiopia - Sidamo), and instead we found this subtle, well-rounded, supremely drinkable coffee. It was like biting into a doughnut expecting raspberry filling and getting a mouthful of Bavarian cream instead. And then thinking, "huh, maybe I should have ordered that to start with."
This single-origin Harrar coffee is from the eastern-most region Ethiopia, the birthplace of the coffee shrub. Opening a bag of freshly roasted Harrar, you will be greeted with aromas of caramel and toasted walnuts, both of which translate into the flavor profile. With great sweetness and mild acidity, this cup has understated notes of stone fruits like plum and nectarine. Especially for a single-origin, this is a versatile coffee. It is great as a light or medium roast and makes a delicious drip brew or espresso.
At Sugar Creek Coffee Roasters, we specialize in hand crafted, small batch, artisanal roasted coffee. While other roasters typically pre-roast and have beans on the shelf, we don't roast until you place your order, so you can be assured the freshest roasted coffee is delivered to your door. Each coffee order is roasted to the optimal flavor of the coffee bean you order.
