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.
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!

This is one of the most unique and best coffees I’ve ever had. You have to try it. It’s even great black.
