Ethiopian natural, or "unwashed" coffees are characteristic for their berry and fruit-like flavor. This coffee has a sweet, berry, fruity flavor with a creamy body and medium-to-high acidity. A berry flavor is naturally imparted to unwashed coffees, because the coffee's cherry-like fruit is left on after harvesting and the coffee seed (or bean) dries inside the cherry. Coffee beans that are washed or wet-processed are immediately removed from the fruit, washed and then air-dried. The Telamo cooperative that produces this coffee is located in the Shebedino District of the Sidama Zone and has about 4,000 members. Learn more about Telamo and SCFCU.
Least like any other coffee I have ever tasted! Very unusual in a good way. Has an earthy aroma and taste you can't miss, the flavor is full without being at all bitter. Great texture too. They say "cherry", I can see that. Not my choice for everyday, but when you want something different this is a good pick. Have also mixed it with several dark roasts and it smooths them out without ruining their dark, smoky complexity.
My go-to favorite
I love the fruity lightness of the flavor of this coffee! It's not light in flavor, but it's bright and full-bodied -- always enjoyable. I buy whole beans and grind it before brewing, and use a pour-over pot. Delicious!
