Clifton Coffee - Ethiopia: Guji Shakiso, Sidamo

Sorry - Sold out - it's been popular!

Getting product details...

A fantastic coffee for all brew methods with complex tastes of fragrant tropical fruit, wild blueberries and a hint of vanilla. As an espresso with milk the bluberries really burst through.

In 2013, this coffee was one of the most characterful and distinctive coffees we’ve ever tasted let alone sold – and we are thrilled to welcome it back for a 2nd year after the 2014 crop was largely disappointing. We’re fortunate enough to have secured the entire UK crop this year and promises to be one of 2015’s most popular coffees.
Located around 100km south of Yirgacheffe the Shakiso mill processes only 300 bags of this beautiful natural Heirloom & Typica coffee a year. 6 farmers owning between 20 & 60 hectares each contribute their crop to this small lot and we were so blown away by the unique characteristics and the quality in the cup that we bought all of it!
