Ethiopia Harrarn- Green
|Roaster Location:||Addis Ababa, Ethiopia|
|Review Date:||May 2000|
Blind Assessment: A splendidly smooth Harrar with persistent, understated power. There is plenty going on in the nose, particularly fruit, but the real strength of this coffee is its smooth, supple presence, particularly as it cools. "It is what it says it is -- friendly, honest, easy to read, pleasant & enjoyable, [though] not sophisticated," concluded one panelist. I loved this coffee, and found its resonant roundness sufficiently sophisticated, even elegant.
Notes: A splendidly smooth Harrar with persistent, understated power. Sophisticated, even elegant. Moplaco Trading is a long-established coffee exporter headquartered in the Harrar region. Its founder, Yanni Georgalis, has an encyclopedic knowledge of Harrar coffee history.
