The Ethiopia Kembata Natural Grade 1 is a perfect example of a natural processed coffee. It is an Heirloom variety, and like other Ethiopians, is packed full of fruity notes of strawberry and blueberry with a smooth milk chocolate finish. It comes from a farm located in the Durame Village of Kembata, Ethiopia.

This coffee is grown at 2100 meters above sea level where the soil is extremely fertile and ideal for growing high quality coffee beans. The farmers incorporate a 36-48-hour fermentation process in the wet mill and then use raised beds for drying the beans under the sun. The cherries that are unwashed spend 15-21 days drying to ensure they are ready. The resulting coffee is an extremely complex cup marked with notes of blueberry and strawberry.

Cupping notes: Blueberry, Strawberry, and Milk Chocolate.

Great coffee and easy to roast. Went to a lighter medium Roast. The aroma of this coffee fills an entire room before its even brewed. Clean tasting with good body. It was a big hit for several military guys, which can be hard to do if the coffee isn't dark, strong, and heavy bodied.

This coffee is great the way I use it. I roast it slowly until it is golden and then grind it for excellent Arabic ground coffee.

"Fruity" is an understatement! It smells fruity before you even roast it. I've never smelled raw coffee that was anything like it. It may not be everyone's cup of tea, but I love the blueberry. And the picture doesn't do it justice. Unlike the picture, mine is very uniform, and roasts very uniformly. I blended this half and half with some coffee that was a bit to earthy for me without much fruitiness, and the blueberry still came through strong with the earthiness completely subdued. This is a wonderful morning coffee to perk up your taste buds and nose. Maybe a bit overkill for later in the day unless blended. It's only been a couple of days since it was roasted so maybe it will mellow out some. I'm certainly not worried about losing the blueberry, but maybe some more chocolatey notes will come out. I'll bet you could push this well into the second crack without losing the blueberry. I roasted it much darker than I normally like, almost to second crack, but it didn't matter.

Great heirloom variety that yields the blueberry you long for in an Ethiopian. Aim for a city roast and drop 30 sec into FC 👌
