If, like me, you enjoy dry processed or natural coffees you really should try this. It's one of the most delicious coffees we have ever tasted!
CURRENT OFFERING ETHIOPIAN GUJI SHAKISSO
SHAKISSO won 2 golds at the 2020 Great Taste Awards. We don't enter the same coffees every year and like to swap them around a bit. The judges wrote;
There's a lovely jaminess to this espresso and intense juicy flavours. Judges get a subtle tobacco note, followed by a well balanced acidity and a mellow cocoa finish.
Our Ethiopian Natural coffees are in short supply. We have 5 beauties here but not much of any of them. We will swap them around a little until supplies are more reliable. If you, like me, love the natural processed coffees, you will no doubt, like any of the lovely coffees we have here.
Two of the coffees have recieved Great Taste Award 3 stars. One received 2 stars and the other two haven't been entered yet. They are all top notch.
These coffees suit all brew methods but it really does depend on your personal taste! I will drink them any which way and with or without milk. A bit on the acidic side for an espresso machine. Love love love Ethiopian coffee! Anne
For new customers that are not sure what a natural coffee is:
• Coffee beans are the seed of a fruit (coffee cherry).
• Processing refers to the method by which the seeds are removed from the fuit.
The above coffees are natural processed (sometimes called dry processed) where the coffee beans are allowed to dry inside the fruit in the sunshine. The juicy pulp inside the fruit adds a sweet, fruity nature to the coffee beans as it dries. An almost fermented flavour with some of them. This process can add extra body to the coffee and a slight boozy nature, but they are often quite unpredictable and flavour can vary from batch to batch.
People call them Marmite coffees, love them or hate them. I'm in the LOVE LOVE LOVE camp!
