"Our Ethiopian Makeda Harrar coffee is painstakingly selected, lot by lot, for its sweet blueberry notes, remarkable middle-note complexity, and luscious body. Intense without being shocking and wild without being gamey, it is a truly exceptional coffee. It possesses a strong dry edge, winy to fruit like acidity, rich aroma, and a heavy body.

Ethiopia produces some of the most unique and fascinating coffees in the world. The three main regions are Harrar (or Harar for the ancient spelling), Ghimbi, and Sidamo (Yirgacheffe). All display the wine and fruit-toned acidity, characteristic of Africa and Arabia coffees, but Ethiopians play a rich range of variations on this theme. These variations are in part determined by the processing method. Harrar coffees are grown on small farms in the eastern part of the country, dry-processed and are labeled as longberry (large), shortberry (smaller) or Mocha (peaberry)."
