An intense espresso beverage — bright and complex with a full-bodied intensity. Recommended shot weight 25g.
Sitting at the heart of Los Volcanes National Park is the fully-organic rainforest farm, El Mirador. This Pacamara lot was shade-grown in rich, volcanic soil, amongst a dazzling variety of flora and fauna that has bloomed in the region since the last eruption in 2006. Sweet fruit notes begin the cup with blackberry and green apple – leading to caramel and bakers chocolate on the finish.
The Sasaba washing station sits at the end of a treacherous mountain road, high up in Ethiopia's famous Guji Zone The station is supplied by a small group of local farmers, most with less than 15 trees each. Getting coffee out of Sasaba is incredibly difficult, requiring specialised off-road vehicles to navigate the rough terrain – but the results are well worth the trouble.
An excellent example of naturally processed Ethiopian coffee, Sasaba is citrusy and sweet – with notes of tangerine and dried strawberry, towards a smooth milk chocolate finish.
