Easily one of our most popular beans. They're super floral, with unmistakable notes of Jasmine and blueberries at every roasting level.
Jasmine comes out much clearer, dancing across a sweet blueberry finish.
We roast this coffee on the dark side, bringing out intense sweetness but preserving the unmistakeable Jasmine aroma.
Very sweet and creamy with stronger chocolate notes laced with blueberry. Hints of Jasmine are still detectable.
Usually, the darker you roast a coffee, the floral accents go up in smoke. But with Ethiopian Sidamo coffees, you can still detect jasmine and rich fruit flavours all the way up the roasting profile. These beans are SHB (Strictly Hard Bean), meaning the plants that mothered these beans struggled to survive at an elevation above 2,200M (7,000 FT). The few berries that did manage to mature, did so very slowly, absorbing nutrients from the soil and slowly producing more complex flavour profiles.
When the coffee cherries are fully ripened they’re picked and immediately dried, without removing the pulp, in raised beds using a technique called Natural Processing. Natural process coffees are more eco-friendly as they don’t create acidic waste water, but this technique is very finicky. Skill is required to rotate the shrivelling berries by hand for an entire month to ensure an even drying process that prevents mold and rot from spoiling the crop. The effort is well worth it though: a rich, densely fruity cup that tastes brilliantly sweet. You may want to skip the sugar with this one.
Resting Your Coffee
Right after roasting, coffee needs some time to chill for a minimum of three days. Our roasting cycle ensures that when you receive the beans, it’ll already have rested the minimum needed. However, the flavours will continue to improve over a time. How long? Well that depends on the roasting level you ordered.
Generally your coffee will be at it’s peak after:
Light: 7-9 days after roast date
Roaster’s Choice: 5-7 days after roast date
Dark: 3-5 days after roast date
But every bean and person is different so please experiment and find what works for you!
No Pre-Ground Beans?
Unfortunately no. We would love to make your experience as convenient as possible, and while grinding your own beans is firmly in the mildly to very annoying category, we simply can’t do this for you.
The reason being, the second you grind your beans, you expose every nook and cranny to delicious coffee’s nemesis: oxygen. Too much oxygen and your coffee can go stale before you receive it in the post.
As delicious tasting coffee is our most important product we can’t take the risk of sending you a convenient but bland ground beans. Our best advice would be for you to buy a grinder.
