Blueberry | Blackberry | Dark Chocolate
Medium-full roast. Inspired by the legendary guitar amplifiers that nearly defined the classic rock era, this blend does not shy away from full throttle tones of sweet chocolate and blue/black fruit. But we don’t roast to “11,” because burnt beans taste like ashtrays. We roast to “6” or “7,” where a little natural distortion (roast character) enhances the underlying sonic profile (sweetness and complexity). 12oz. or 5lb. bag of whole beans.
- 60% Ethiopia Guji Natural Process, Kilenso Washing Station. Sourced from the Guji Coffee Export PLC, which is owned and operated by Girma Edema who has more than 20 years of experience exporting coffee from the Kercha district within the Guji zone. Coffee producers deliver their ripe cherries to the Kilenso washing station where the cherries are sorted and immediately placed on raised beds and dried over a period of 15 to 20 days. The raised drying beds are carefully constructed to ensure proper air circulation and temperature control for an optimal drying process. Cherries are also turned regularly on the beds to prevent damage during the drying process. The cherries are stored in a local warehouse after the moisture is reduced to less than 12 percent. Then the beans are transported to Addis Ababa, the capital of Ethiopia, to be milled and prepared for export. Girma's control of processing, from drying up to the final export stage, preserves the coffee from damage and results in an exceptionally clean and sweet cup profile.
