Why you'll love it
We’re incredibly excited to release our first anaerobic natural from Ethiopia. Anaerobic coffees have gone from being unique outliers in the coffee world to mainstays. These vibrant coffees are full of intense, stewed fruit-like flavours, with lots of sweetness and a signature funky note. Created by sealing the coffee in an oxygen-free environment, the coffee cherries begin to break down and impart incredibly interesting and unique notes to the final cup.
Ethiopian coffee sits completely out of the normal in terms of flavour. It can be incredibly floral, fruity and complex. What has been the norm in the Ethiopian cup profile is what some of the most awarded farms in the world have been trying to achieve for ages.
One of the key attributes of what makes Ethiopian coffee so special is the variety of cultivars in each lot. This genetic diversity makes the harvest more resistant to diseases, allowing the overall health of the harvest to be much higher than the mono-culture farms in the rest of the world. The health of the crop means that the coffee cherries can pass on those much-needed nutrients to their seeds, creating an even sweeter and more interesting coffee.
