Ethiopia Ayehu


Ethiopia Ayehu comes from a farm in the fertile highlands of the Amhara region in Northern Ethiopia. It grew between 1,700 and 1,800 meters above sea level and is Rainforest Alliance certified. Under the management of Horizon/Ethio the growers practice sustainable farming, growing coffee in a manner that is good to the environment and its inhabitants. The farms and surrounding areas are home to nearly 100,000 people who live and work on the plantations.

Roasting Notes: Works very well as a light roasted coffee. We seem to like a light-medium roast. The appearance of uneven roasting is the norm for these beans and has no effect on flavor. Proof is in the cup!

Note: This coffee, like most high-end Ethiopians, should be left to rest for 48 hours for the flavors to fully develop. There is a distinct change that occurs in the 2nd 24 hour period.

Cupping Notes: Intense aroma. Sweet, clean red berries, dark chocolate flavors. Silky body.

Note: these are unroasted green coffee beans
