|Sidamo (also Sidama) growing region, southern Ethiopia.
Deep, sweetly pungent. Dark chocolate, lightly fermented grape, narcissus-like flowers, coconut in aroma and cup. Round, low-toned but vibrant acidity; syrupy mouthfeel. Chocolate-toned but quite drying finish.
Southern Ethiopia coffees like this one are produced from traditional Ethiopian varieties of Arabica long grown in the region. This is a “natural” or dry-processed version, meaning the beans were dried inside the fruit, encouraging a flavor profile that is less predictable and deeper than the more familiar wet-processed floral- and citrus-toned southern Ethiopia profile. Like virtually all Ethiopia coffees, this coffee is produced by villagers on small, garden plots interplanted with food and other subsistence crops. Paradise Roasters specializes in micro-lot coffees and espressos from Hawaii and other premier coffee growing regions. The company prides itself on quality and freshness, craft-roasting coffees in small batches only after orders are placed. Visit www.paradiseroasters.com or call 763-433-0626 for more information.
