Getting product details...

A supremely balanced natural process Yirgacheffe. Super sweet with blueberry, amarena cherry and mango leading onto notes of violet and back grape finish.

From Artisan Roast:

Natural processed coffees from Yirgacheffe coffees are very popular now have a huge fan base for their bold, vibrant, juicy, fruit driven flavour profiles. This acts as a real counterpoint to the more traditional washed coffees from this region famed for their floral aromatics and tea like mouth.

Terroir and process play an equal role in delivering this full on flavour profile. The region has a diversity of indigenous coffee varieties that make Yirgacheffe coffee taste like no other. In terms of processing the method has more similarity to that of other growing regions. Ripe cherries are delivered to the processing station. After sorting into different qualities they are then carefully dried on raised beds - initially the coffee is turned every hour or two until the initial moisture content is reduced, before the turning pattern then slows down after the first few days until a stable moisture content is reached. Natural coffees then need to rest to reduce astringency and improve the cup quality before being milled a minimum of two months after picking.

With the natural coffees the retention of the coffee fruit pulp during drying changes the flavour and taste profile. The best natural Yirgacheffes, like this grade one, have a basket full of very ripe fruits including, blueberry, strawberry, cherry and even mango dominating the cup. The taste balance is very different in natural processing when compared to washed process coffees too because more of coffee's naturally occurring sugars are retained. This means sweetness is more prominent in the taste balance which works harmoniously with the tropical fruit flavour profile.

This selection from Dumerso represents the sweet nature of natural Yirgacheffe very well. The berry fruit profile is refined and less boozy than some from the region. The Dumerso mill, which is about four miles north of Yirga Chefe town, is known for producing consistent high quality coffees year in year out that focus on balance and controlling the drying curve of red cherries to prevent unwanted ferment.

As with most Ethiopian coffees for Artisan this Dumerso was sourced through the large centralised EXC platform that deals with most coffee in Ethiopia. We have kept the filter roast light to preserve the clarity of cup and let the ripe fruit flavours roll out, particularly blueberry, amarena cherry and mango. Delicate and transient floral aromas of violet come though as the coffee cools and a quality black grape acidity balances this very sweet coffee together with a delicious, long lasting finish.
