Our Favourite Espresso changes with the seasons and our mood. It's not a specific flavour profile but the coffee that we find the most exciting to have as espresso at the moment. Whichever coffee we use, you can always count on Our Favourite Espresso to be fresh, in season and with a clear sense of origin. Just the way we like it.
Right now, Our Favourite Espresso comes from:
Testi Adorsi in Aricha, Ethiopia.
Variety: Ethiopian Heirloom & Kurume
Altitude: 2150 m.a.s.l.
Harvested: January 2019
Taste notes: Sweet and structured with notes of peach and honeydew
500 or 1000 grams of whole beans roasted for a light to medium bodied espresso or a heavier filter brew.
This lot comes from the Adorsi Testi washing station in Aricha and it’s neighbouring small family plots of land. Aricha, located in the Yirgacheffe region, boasts gorgeous hills of lush green, perfect for growing coffee. Along those hills, at a stunning 2150 meters above sea level is where the cherries of this lot has been growing and taken care of. The high altitude combined with the mineral rich and fertile soil along with the attention to detail and care at the processing station is some of the many things that makes this coffee so special. Super sweet and with deliciously juicy notes of peach and honeydew - This gem of a coffee immediately stood out when we were deciding which coffees to purchase. The complexity, high sweetness and balanced acidity comes together beautifully to show you just why we’re always excited when we can offer you fresh crop coffee from Ethiopia, and Yirgacheffe and Aricha in particular.
