Ethiopia Masha Natural Organic G-1

Masha Natural Organic certified coffee comes from Masha Woreda Yeppo Village, a coffee farm owned by Olympic running champion Haile Gebrselassie. The land was a gift from the Ethiopian government, in appreciation for his achievements representing Ethiopia. Among his accomplishments, Haile is a two-time Olympic World Champion and the holder of 27 world records, for distances from 1,500 meters to the marathon.

The coffee beans are natural (dry) processed and have a scent of strawberry milkshakes in green form.

Cupping Notes: Intense dry and wet aroma of Strawberry and milk chocolate. Flavors include lot of berries: Strawberry, blueberry, currants, along with honey and mango. Very complex. Medium-full body with bright acidity.

Roasting Notes: It would be unfortunate to pay a premium price for these beans, then to dark roast them. Anywhere between City and City ++. If you do want to bring out milk chocolate, take it a little darker but you'll loose the berries, except for maybe the black currants.

Note: these are unroasted green coffee beans
