Ethiopia Longberry Deep Blue Harrar


Starting at $7.75 $6.82 / lb
As low as $5.57 / lb
raw green bean Green coffee is raw Roast prior to consumption

The Harrar region lies in Ethiopia's Eastern Highlands. As one of the main growing regions in Ethiopia, Harrar has a reputation for producing distinctive wild-varietal Arabica. Once picked, the coffee can go through a variety of milling processes. Harrar beans are usually natural-processed coffees, which produces the distinct berry notes the region is most recognized for. This Harrar Longberry (actually the beans aren't shaped any different from other beans, "longberry" is just the Ethiopian grading term for the largest beans) is deeper and a bit less fruity than the Horse or Special Prep varieties.

Rich and buttery texture with a hint of cloves and dark chocolate on the finish. Medium body with a rich lasting finish. Moderately bright fruit acidity

I read these reviews which say they taste chocolate or blueberry or caramel. My palate is not so sophisticated. What I do know is that with my single bean blend of roast times, My morning CUPPA tastes like what I think coffee should taste like. An ancestor of mine in the 1800s who served both the union and the confederate navies wrote in a book that mornings start with a cup of coffee and a cigar. I no longer smoke but my day starts with a coffee. I often wonder how his coffee was and from where it came. I imagine he drank his as black as mine and only the sweetness of the natural bean. What was the coffee of 1840? Back to the review, I give 5 stars because I can't register six! Here is to 60% City roast and 40% City +. As my mug says, "I drink coffee for your protection!"

Interesting flavor profile for sure. Roasted to about City +, very nice mouthfeel, rich and balanced. I taste some chocolate, with some blueberry on the back end, that stays with you for a minute or too. Nothing overpowering, very pleasant. I tend to like this over some of the other Yirgs that lean toward the strawberry side. As in many things, ratings are very subjective. You either like it or not so much. But even if a particular bean is not your favorite, that doesn't take away from the fact that it is a fresh, quality bean. Seems like every bean I've tried from CBC is fits that bill.

I have been roasting now for about 2 years, with a Behmor 1600. I usually don't write reviews, but in this case I thought it was prudent, this coffee I found extremely dirty with chaff in cool down mode and it roast's very fast between first and second crack almost inseparable, thus it is easy to over-roast, other than that it is a good cup of coffee. Just thought I'd let fellow roasters know.

One taste of this and we went back and ordered 5#. We roast our coffee on the lighter, brighter side, after years of shiny, ham-fisted, over-roasted coffee. This has all the great smell, complex personality traits and that woodsy-woody earthy taste that is very hard to come by! YAY!

Toast to just after second crack. Offers a nice aroma and earthy, fruity flavor with wine undertones.

Deep, rich, complex, balanced. Earthy, chocolate, fruity and beautiful. Classic Harrar.

African coffee is always my truest preference. Although, the flavors in all African coffees are intense, Ethiopian Longberry Deep Blue Harrar does not fail to meet its bold expectations. Personally, I drink my coffee black, no sugar or cream. The flavor of this coffee is about the same of drinking pure cherry tart juice or cranberry, not everyone can tolerate these coffees. I have to say that the coffee is subtle as a stone when I drink it, unlike Latin American coffees that tend to be a little more lighter and uplifting. I have to say that it is not so much the flavor of these coffees that keep me drinking them, but it is that they are raw.

I reread my last posted review and can only say... I got a new roaster, wore out the last one, I roast 60% for 6 minutes and 40% for 8 minutes. I roast 630 grams every Saturday morning for my weeks brewing. Quoting from my previous review " It is what I think coffee should taste like. Better than any Columbian bean (IMHO). Harar, hurrah!" I kicked the Starbucks habit and could not be happier in my breakfast drink of choice!

My 2nd favorite coffee, first being Queen City Harrar.

Roasted this as both a lighter roast (just after first crack) and darker (beginning of second crack) and was disappointed by the flavor. It seems rather bitter with no actual unique characteristics. I wouldn't recommend.

Roasted just to the end of the first crack. Very good! I'll order more of this one.

I like a blend of 60% 15 minute roast and 40% 17 minute roast, I get the soil and plant flavors and the caramelized sugar flavors without sacrificing good mouthfeel. It is what I think coffee should taste like. Better than any Columbian bean (IMHO). Harar, hurrah!

After the Yergacheffes this may be my favorite Ethiopian bean. And I love Ethiopian coffees so that is no small praise. Roasted just to the very beginning of 2nd crack, as is my usual practice. Definitely like it better than the queen city Harrar, which is good but not this good.

My favorite so far. Seems to benefit from a slighter lighter roast than what I expected. A 10 minute City Roast seems to work well. Maybe the best of the Ethiopians? Nice aroma. Nice finish.
