Damson Jam, Sugared Almond & Sweet Vermouth
In the cup: Damson Jam, Sugared Almond & Sweet Vermouth
This Ethiopian is light, bright, herbal and floral. The aroma is deep and complex with notes of rosemary and bergamot. Then, zesty lime, dried hops and sparkling acidity make for a refreshing and incredibly clean brew.
Ethiopian coffees are unique, in that the diversity in varietals creates distinctive region-specific flavour profiles. These crops are then combined and processed as one lot and sold on through the Ethiopian Commodity Exchange (ECX). Ninety per cent of Ethiopian coffees are traded through the ECX which ensures standardised quality and reassurance for both buyer and seller.
Whilst the ECX continues to benefit these smallholders by taking their coffee to market, and in doing so absorbing costs and risks involved, transparency of the product is generally poor. This coffee is marketed as both a grade and growing region, but little to no information is passed on about the individual smallholders involved. Frustrating as this is, is does not detract from the immense quality of coffee grown in this region.
This Ethiopian coffee is bright, sweet, herbal and floral. The aroma is deep and complex with notes of heady botanicals and citrus. The tart sweetness of damson jam dances on the palette and there is a harmony with milk that brings to mind sugared almond and praline.
