Longbottom Coffee and Tea
Ethiopia Mocha Harrar
|Roaster Location:||Hillsboro, Oregon|
|Coffee Origin:||Harrar region of eastern Ethiopia|
|Review Date:||February 2004|
Sweetly roasty in the aroma, thin-bodied and sharply roasty in the cup. Almost disembodied floral top notes float above a bittersweet, prune-toned chocolate.
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, fruit and all, which gives it its characteristic wine-like fruit character. Longbottom is a pioneering premium specialty roaster founded 21 years ago and, like many Oregon roasters, a proponent of fluidized bed or "hot air" roasting technology in which a column of heated air both roasts and agitates the beans.
