How It Tastes

The delicacy of the blossoms, the potency of the oil, the counterpoise of the peel when candied. Bite. Kiss. Zest. Sugar.

History

This is the allure of coffee from Jimma, Ethiopia, our specially selected lot, our unique light roast, offered only for the holiday season.

Worth Noting

Where our traditional, and much-anticipated Holiday Blend is multi-regional, multi-faceted, full, spicy and dark, Étoile is a single-origin spark of the light, et la nouvelle.

Perhaps I am not brewing this coffee correctly. Previously, I have brewed lightly roasted Yirgachefe beans from La Prima Tazza in Lawrence, Kansas, which was wonderful. The Etoile beans leave a lot of light colored chaff after brief grinding. Using a French press, there is considerable light colored bubbly, froth upon first pouring in the boiled water. The color of the patina after brewing is too light, not the rich tawny, ochre that is typical of most coffees. The aroma of this brew is sour and it tends to leave a sourness in the back of the throat that does not endear one to further consumption. I have tried increasing the amount of beans used and brewing time, which helps, but still does not ameliorate the sourness. This citrus like sourness does not approach the pleasing rich, bitterness expected in fresh ground coffee beans.
