Kenya Kanake is a washing station on the upper elevations of the Aberdare Range in Kiambu county. It’s truly picturesque—nestled in between small tea farms and low laying clouds. High elevation gives both the range required for developing acidity and the cool climate needed for […]
A few months ago, Superlost Coffee sent me their inaugural roast, Solo Sábado, for review. I was intrigued by the coffee; it was a decent coffee that could have been better if roasted just a touch longer. Apparently, I wasn’t the only one who provided […]
region: Agaro, Jimma, Oromia, Ethiopia
producer: smallholder farmers
association: Ethiopia Duromina Cooperative
elevation: 2200 meters above sea level
cultivars: Ethiopia Heirloom
process: fully washed, raised bed dried
The aroma of the Ethiopia Duromina is perfumed, fragrant, and elegant, blossoming with florals, stone fruit, and citrus.
The flavor follows the nose, and the coffee’s profile is every bit as delicate and elegant as its aroma. It’s a light-bodied coffee, with a silky mouthfeel and soft citric acidity. This is a balanced, clean coffee, too; every flavor component is easily identifiable (which is great, because the flavors in this cup are beautiful). It’s a floral-forward coffee with dominant flavors of peach blossom and oolong tea. There isn’t much in the way of sugary sweetness in this cup besides some light honey nuances, but those floral flavors are backed up by a flood of juicy peach, watermelon, and Meyer lemon which play through a clean finish.
