More about this coffee:
This coffee is from Faysel Abdosh who has been working in the coffee industry for close to 20 years. His incredible attention to detail and immaculate processing methods have allowed his coffees to consecutively win multiple places in the Cup of Excellence competition every year. In this year's competition, his natural anaerobic coffee scored a high 87.59, which earned him 24th place. This impressive lot contains carefully selected coffees from 500 smallholders in two regions of Ethiopia. The farm in total collects about 900,000 kilograms of red cherries annually, which are compiled into natural and natural anaerobic processed coffees. This year's 2021 Natural Anaerobic lot is an incredible representation of the region's spectacular terroir and Faysel's unique processing techniques. It exhibits a distinguished sweetness that is recognized only in the highest quality coffees in Ethiopia. It is balanced, yet complex, and has a sparkling acidity with a distinct clarity.
This coffee is easily soluble. We like it coarse grind, slow pour, low agitation. Starts with 1:16.5 then go from there. You can try, 12.5g to 200g brew, 50g slow bloom for 45 seconds, the slow pour the water to 120g then 200g. Target brew time around 2min.
