  • In the cup this coffee is lively and bright with notes of apricot and cocoa with a heavy body and a clean, crisp finish. This is our absolute favorite personal "go-to" natural coffee!
  • Ethiopia produces some of the most unique and fascinating coffees in the world and are known for producing some of the most unique natural and pulp natural coffees.
  • Ethiopian Harrar coffee is often used in espresso blends to capture the fine aromatics in the crema.
  • At a medium roast the Guji delivered the fruitiness we were looking for, sweet and syrupy strawberry flavors with blueberry tones and chocolate-citrus notes at the finish. For fullest flavor, do not roast anything past the medium profile.
  • Great Ethiopians are hard to come by these days – be sure to get a bag before they disappear.

Characteristics: Smooth, creamy blueberry/strawberry nuances, floral notes, clean milk chocolate finish. Elevation: 1800-2000 meters Dried on raised beds, triple hand sorted (ripe cherry, dry pods, processed beans). The Grade 3 aspect is simply removing more defects thru hand sorting than they do normally hence producing a cleaner, better cup. Description: A nice, classic Sidamo from Ethiopia features sweet and fruity aromatics with hints of wood, lemongrass reminiscent of pixie sticks. In the cup this coffee is lively and bright with notes of apricot and cocoa with a heavy body and a clean, crisp finish. The majority of coffee in the world is wet-processed, meaning the fruit is stripped off the bean, the mucilage is removed and the fruitless seed dries in the sun. In natural coffees however, the whole coffee cherry gets put directly out in the sun and dries around the seed. This can either add an unparalleled level of complexity and uniqueness to the bean - or it can destroy it if not properly handled. Oftentimes there is a "dirty" flavor hiding behind dry processed coffees. But if you get one that's done right (like this one), you are blown away by an incredible "perfumed" aroma and flavor in the cup. This "perfumed"characteristic fills the entire nasal cavity and lingers - you definitely take notice. One needs to be careful with this though. The aroma is so unique that it can be distracting and hide some off-flavors in the cup. Full City to French Roast was where the flavors converged. At this roast, the cup is so remarkably sweet, it might even become cloying for some; it is a dessert coffee for sure. If we call your standard dry-process coffees "natural", this might be referred to as "neo-natural". It's a 90+ coffee easily for anyone who loves this flavor profile.

Delicious Ethiopian Sidamo coffee

As always, RhoadsRoast coffee beans are outstanding. I’ve been a regular customer for years, and never have been disappointed. The single origin beans are so special, and always super fresh, roasted in the morning and shipped the same day. A top notch company in every way!

QC Seems Lax

Overall flavor is good, but there are entirely too many sub-par beans in this selection. Unacceptable number of quakers and the roast consistency is bad with a wide spread between under-roasted and a few over-roasted beans. I know Ethiopian origin coffees traditionally have widely variable bean sizes and this makes even roasting challenging, but it seems to me a bit more effort can be made to QC the final product before shipping.

All Ethiopian natural coffees roast unevenly as past of the in-country milling process.
As no water is involved in milling, the natural process does contribute to taste, though it can roast unevenly also due to the bean sizing. The best natural Ethiopian coffee in roasting is the Harrar because of the better agricultural and quality control taken by the farms.
Thank you,


Love it
