  • Ethiopia Longberry Harrar - Green

Roast: NA Review Date: May 2000
Origin: Harrar growing region, eastern Ethiopia. Price: NA
 

Blind Assessment: A flawed coffee, but complex and intriguing in its faults. Every panelist except one cited defects, but the intrigue of the defects inspired them to refined description. "Potatoey, soapy," said one; "Old, wood-pulp flavor," another. I suspect that this pleasantly sweet, light coffee attracted some serious mustiness or mould during drying.

Notes: This otherwise pleasantly sweet, light coffee attracted some serious mustiness or mould during drying. Longberry apparently refers to traditional varieties of coffea arabica naturalized in the Harrar region for centuries which produce a more elongated bean than the rounder beans of varieties that produce the inevitably named shortberry Harrar.

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.
