Hood River Coffee
|Roaster Location:||Hood River, Oregon|
|Coffee Origin:||Harrar region of eastern Ethiopia|
|Roast Level:||Very Dark|
|Review Date:||February 2004|
Richly melodic coffee in which wine and apple notes carry from aroma through cup to finish. A tactful dark roast preserves a shimmer of acidity in the cup while contributing a slight herbal twist to the dominating apple-cider-like notes.
Harrar is one of the world's oldest and most traditional coffees. As it has been for centuries, it is simply picked and spread in the sun to dry inside the fruit, which gives it its characteristic wine-like fruit character. Hood River Coffee is a premium small-batch roaster located in the Colombia River Gorge. Visit
