Ethiopia Kembata is a delightful new addition to our offering list. Fans of natural process coffee will love the clean and sweet profile. But we’ve also been very impressed with the versatility of this coffee too! This coffee has been great across all types of brew methods like pour overs, French press, and batch brew. And as a single origin espresso it was full body with lots of complexity, rich fruit notes and sweetness.

This particular farm is Located in the Durame Village of Kembata, Ethiopia. At 2100 meters above sea level, 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.
