Ethiopia is the birthplace of coffee. Many experts say that it's the only place coffee grew natively. Ethiopian Harrar coffee is considered to be one of the best coffees in the world. The reputation is well deserved. Harrar is spicy and full-bodied with an almost wine-like texture and taste.
Region: Harrar (Ethiopia)
Body: Buttery, medium, balanced.
Notes: Blueberry, floral, spices, nuts
Balance: Acidity is the brightness that coffee offers. Some palates register this as sour or tangy. Some delight in its fruity complexities.
Alternatively, boldness can taste rich and bittersweet like dark chocolate. Some palates register this as heavy or smoky. Some delight in its rich, spicy caramelized sugars.
Balanced coffees will have a nice mixture of both attributes so that one does not overpower the other.
Ethiopia accounts for about 3% of global coffee production, making it the worlds events largest producer. Harrar coffee beans are one of the oldest still in production. Ethiopian Harrar is grown at an elevation of 1510-2120 meters above sea level.
