Story

Many of the farmers in Ethiopia produce very small quantities of cherry, so it is very beneficial to have a central milling station with a manager that demonstrates the highest of quality standards. Natural processed coffees are difficult to achieve without fermented fruit, but if it is well-cared for and monitored, a coffee such as our Ethiopia Natural is achieved, presenting juicy-fruit aromatics.

Natural identifies the method of coffee processing that takes place at the farm level. Although natural coffee can go by several different names - like natural processed, unwashed, or dry processed - it all basically means the sun has done all of the processing. Although it is a simple process, it's certainly not easy. To create naturally processed coffee, hundreds of coffee cherries are spread out in the sun, which are then turned by hand to make sure they dry evenly to prevent mildew. This process can take up to four weeks to get the coffee cherries completely dry - that's a lot of turning! If all goes well, natural processed coffees deliver unique and amazing flavors.

Superb
It's hard to believe no-one has reviewed this coffee in the last six years. If you like natural unwashed coffees this is excellent. My favorite coffee out of the six or eight various coffees I've tried from the Roasterie, hands down.

Clever Dripper (18oz size)
Water @ 200F
29g coffee to 415g water
3-3.5min from start of pour to when you sit the dripper on your vessel to drain.

Ethiopian Natural
This is my daily coffee most mornings. I find the brew fully flavored with very low bitterness. My preference is to sweeten with Splenda and use heavy cream (about 45 ML)in a large insulated travel cup.
