Varietal: Heirloom
Process: Double Soak Washed

"For this coffee, Neja used a technique called double soaking to process the cherries. Basically the cherries are de-pulped and put into water to ferment. Next they are scrubbed and placed in water to ferment again and receive a second scrubbing before heading to the raised drying beds. As you might imagine this produces a "cleaner" and sweeter tasting coffee."

    A super smooth, classic washed Ethiopian that is balanced across the flavors you might expect to find - some peach, some black tea, a bit of florality. Very, very easy to drink. I'd like a bit more complexity in the acidity and fruit, but just about everyone will be very happy with this roast.

    I gave it a 5 because I think the processsing technique and roaster accomplishes very specifically what it's going for, which a super clean, light, easy to drink coffee that still has what you would expect from an Ethiopian.

    Cupping Method:Hario ceramic v60, brown paper filter, 205 degrees F. From the Green Kettle Advent Calendar.
