Coffee Story

This coffee hails from the Harrar region of Ethiopia and is available while the supply lasts. Named for its origin, Dire Dawa (deer-a-da-wa) is the “Queen City” and market hub of Harar.

Located in eastern Ethiopia, Harrar is a region closely associated with the heart of coffee and is a traditional center for natural production. The natural processing style is what gives this inherently great coffee its big fruit flavor, freely releasing its pleasing aromatics and leaving acidity dancing on the tongue. This is different from our Ethiopian Fancy, which is from the Sidamo region and is a washed coffee. Queen City is fruity, complex, winy and spicy, with notes of fig.

2013's Queen City proved to be a powerhouse of exquisite flavor and a bold exemplar of Ethiopian Harar longberry flavor notes. The batches we sampled in our office proudly announced themselves with complex winy, blueberry notes (that much reminded us of Imagery Winery's Code Blue) and made for an excellent cup. Brewed as a pour-over, in the Aeropress, or as an iced coffee using the Japanese method, you can't go wrong.

This coffee is the fruitiest coffee I've ever had, but its not tropical fruity its fruity like a fine wine. The description is spot on and its definitely one of the most unique coffee I've ever had but i'm just not a fan of winy fruit taste although that's what a lot of people love about Ethiopia coffee.
