WE HAVE A SOFT SPOT FOR NATURAL ETHIOPIANS.
Tekamo Mekiso is the name of the farmer that grew and processed this coffee, on his 9.4 hectare farm in Ethiopia. The coffee is a natural processed, bringing great sweet, fruity goodness on top of classic Yirgacheffe 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 few 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 Ethiopian natural are wild. We have a soft spot for natural processed Ethiopians, and this coffee is everything we could have hoped for. Tons of fruit notes, with a refined acidity. When we cupped this coffee, our team tasted apple blossom, great sweetness, and peach nectar.
