THE FLAVORS OF THIS ETHIOPIAN SHAKISO ARE WILD.
Shakiso is a town in southern Ethiopia, located in the Guji Zone of the Oromia Region. Coffee farming is a core part of the culture here. Just south of Yirgacheffe, and Sidamo, the coffee is distinct, having a different flavor profile while maintaining a lot of the same characteristics.
This is a natural processed coffee, which means after the cherries have been picked, they are dried on raised beds (the full fruit, with the seed inside) for 15 to 21 days. Every two hours the cherries are moved to ensure uniform drying. After the drying period, the seeds are picked and sorted from the cherries by hand. We love natural processed coffees for their distinct fruitiness!
The flavors of this Ethiopia Shakiso are wild. We have a soft spot for natural processed Ethiopians, and this new crop is everything we could have hoped for. Tons of fruit notes, with a refined acidity. When we cupped this coffee, our team tasted raspberries, candy apple, and chamomile.
