Our Ethiopia Harrar Natural GR4 is produced by 155 small farm holders, including 12 women of the Tutta Klanisa Cooperative. The farms are located at altitudes ranging from 4,900 ft to just under 6,900 and are of a nutrient rich loam soil type. Ethiopia, the birthplace of coffee is known throughout the world for it’s unmistakable, fruity-sweet cup profiles.
Harrar coffee is thought of as one of the finest examples of true coffee, meant to drink straight. It is best when medium roasted, so its natural acidity remains high. In terms of blending, this Ethiopia Harrar Natural GR4 can help build sharp acidity in espressos, with its fruit notes and sweetness shining through in milk-based drinks. But as we often say, you are the boss…do as you please.
Our Ethiopia Harrar Natural GR4 comes from whole, heirloom natural processed Ethiopia arabica coffee. Especially in Harrar, the traditional natural or dry process method has long been a trusted cornerstone of coffee production. The process refers to the practice in which the whole unpulped coffee cherry is sun dried on raised beds and carefully tilled by hand to ensure that it is uniformly dried.As it dries, the sun tends to raisinate the coffee cherry, resulting in the renowned wild, fruit-forward and bodied style of many Ethiopian coffees. Dry/natural processing allows the juices and enzymes of the coffee cherry to transfer from the fruit’s skin and pulp mucilage and be absorbed into the bean, where once roasted it imparts a wild and fruity quality. When observing a sample of dry process coffee, a subtle peppering of color is noticeable—an unmistakable visual characteristic of hue that forms as a result of the drying process. This peppering can become even more noticeable once the coffee has been roasted.
The Harrar Region is located in the Eastern Highlands portion of Ethiopia’s Oromia Zone. Geographically Harrar is the easternmost growing region in the whole country.
