Ethiopian Queen City Harrar 200g
Whole Bean or Ground
About This Coffee:
This lot of the Ethiopian Queen City Harrar was acquired through Coffeebean Corral, an importer of specialty coffee based in the United States and was procured through and graded by our rep based in Rhône-Alpes, France.
Excerpt from Coffee Bean Corral:
Harrar is known as "the coffee of kings," grown in the original coffee country and dried naturally on the trees. This adds a wildness to the cup which is also spicy, fruity and flowery, quite complex. This coffee is versatile, with something good to offer across the entire roast spectrum. Some compare it to Mocca; I call it a work of art...with an attitude.
The aroma will get your attention first: hints of blueberries, strawberries, peaches and cinnamon (they should make this into a cereal). The taste is what your nose has prepared you for, but overtly wild and earthy with excellent balance. This new crop really blew me away with exactly how balanced it is. The outstanding fruitiness is still there in great measure, but the lower-tones of chocolate and earth really compliment it more than any Harar in recent memory. Its brightness really shines while it's still hot but does ebb as the temperature cools, especially in darker roasts.
