Suma Ethiopia Harar Coffee
Ethiopian coffee is always good - but never quite as good as Kenya or Tanzania. It's always just that bit more run-of-the-mill. The most common one we've had is from Yirgacheffe - but this one's a new one. Never heard of Harar. It's pre-ground from Suma, and has a great smell when you burst that packet. This one is super-fragrant, it's flowery, it's citrussy, it's all those poncy things. We loved it. Anyone would like this one too - you can't overdose on it - it comes out the same every single time, with a good head even from our aging plunger. The only bad thing about it was how fast the packet went down 'cos we loved it so much. It's a lush and it's a 10/10
"This new gem in our range comes from a cooperative farmer’s union in Ethiopia, where the altitude, climate, soil and terrain of the eastern highland plateaus create ideal growing conditions for great tasting coffee. The Oromia Coffee Farmers Cooperative Union, who are well renowned for producing outstanding coffee, process the beans the traditional way by sun-drying them in their shells. This gives a completely different flavour proposition to other Ethiopian varieties such as Yirgacheffe. The drying process encourages delicious wine and blueberry aromas, resulting in a superb coffee with a full-bodied yet smooth taste. A great choice for the coffee connoisseur!"
