Flying Baron | Ethiopia Yirga Cheffe Konga Natural
Brand Flying Baron Roasters
"Strawberries, cookies n' cream, dried fruits, milky body."
"Located in the Gedeo zone area of Yirga Cheffe, this lot of Konga is in an area of Yirga Cheffe with a range of 1900-2300 meters, and is dry-processed on raised beds. Smallholder farmers from around the region delivery their heirloom Ethiopian coffee varietals to the station where it is weighed and then sun dried before being delivered to Addis Ababa for sale. This lot is a “clean” version of the process with its wide array of fruit characteristics easily perceptible. It is certainly a clean coffee with few quakers (under-ripes). But they are still there. With naturals, nothing is perfect. This is a very typical Ethiopian coffee in that it’s full of fruits such as strawberries and bing cherry. You might also pick up some spices and even chocolate giving it a cookies ‘n cream taste. This coffee is very versatile in that it will work with many brewing methods, including espresso. We also love this coffee because it’s so berry-forward and it’s a great example of what coffee can really be!"
