Grima Edema, Grade 1 Natural Guji, Ethiopia

from 15.75

There aren't enough superlatives in the language to adequately express our love of Ethiopia coffees. Ethiopia coffees are our BFF's, and have been for many years. They're effervescent and ebullient, bright and charming, and just plain old delightful in every way. It's always a pleasure to see them on the table. We've been exceedingly fortunate this year in that the season has literally lasted the entire year. We cannot recall this ever happening. This Grima Edema Natural, arrived packed in GrainPro, and when we opened it up, the whiskey and ripe fruit aromatics in the green coffee were astounding. The final roast profile we settled on exhibits a somewhat extended mid-range, but is otherwise unremarkable. The coffee develops nicely on its own, without requiring the somewhat convoluted coaxing that natural and wet-hulled coffees sometimes do. This perhaps can be attributed to how remarkably clean even dry process coffees have become these days. More on that subject in a future blog post, perhaps.

The cup starts out with a velvety mouthfeel and intense aroma, with blackberry and a bit of juniper at the front. As it cools, pronounced lemony notes take over. Finish is clean, with an effervescent citrus quality. We recommend this for pourover style extraction, so break out your V60 or Chemex, your favorite kettle, and have a go.
