Ethiopia Harrar by Alaska Coffee Roasting Company Review |
  • Alaska Coffee Roasting Company

    Fairbanks, Alaska
  • Ethiopia Harrar

Roast: NA Review Date: September 1999
Origin: Harrar growing region, eastern Ethiopia. Price: NA

Blind Assessment: Smoky, resiny tones turn the Harrar fruit richly winy. In the finish everything softens and sweetens. The cabernet fruit tones deepen toward chocolate and the smoke tones turn toward fresh tobacco.

Notes: Alaska may be the home to more fine coffee roasters than any other state in the union. I 'm adding Alaska Coffee Roasting Company to the list. It 's undoubtedly the winters.

Who Should Drink It: An adventurer 's coffee, hearty but exotic.


Coffee, more so than wine, is a continually changing product. Recent reviews, whether written by Coffee Review or readers, are most likely to reflect current versions of a given coffee.
