    We Taste: Dark Chocolate + Blueberries

    Coffee: Ethiopia Sidama

    Process: Natural

    Brew Ratio: 16:1

    This coffee is bittersweet, heavy, chocolatey and with some soft blueberry notes. For those who like natural process coffees but want some cream in their cup and/or less acidity, this is the perfect roast for you.

    We got this lot from our good friends at Keffa. This Sidama is not as flashy as our Ardi but it has plenty of character. This Sidama is a gr4 natural, it isn't as clean or fruit forward as our usual grade 1's but for a dark roast natural, that isn't that important. In order to make this coffee shine, we hand sort each roast to eliminate any defects that might have made your cup a little less sweet.


    Stuff for Roast Nerds:
    We developed a special dark roast profile just for this coffee. We took our Ethiopia Ardi profile as a base but instead of decreasing gas to 1" WC we kept the gas at 4". This change allows the roast to maintain it's RoR and hit a dark roast level past second crack. This is the first time we have ever taken an Ethiopian natural this dark or even to second crack, in order to preserve the fermented fruit notes we maintained a relatively short development time with a speed that tapers off right after SC.
