Harrar is known as "the coffee of kings," grown in the original coffee country and dried naturally on the trees. This adds a wildness to the cup which is also spicy, fruity and flowery, quite complex. This coffee is versatile, with something good to offer across the entire roast spectrum. Some compare it to Mocca; I call it a work of art...with an attitude.

The aroma will get your attention first: hints of cherry, dark chocolate, and dried fruit (pairs VERY well with a nice granola!). The taste is what your nose has prepared you for, but overtly wild and earthy with excellent balance. The outstanding fruitiness is still there in great measure, but the lower-tones of chocolate and earth really compliment it more than any Harar in recent memory. Its brightness really shines while it's still hot but does ebb as the temperature cools, especially in darker roasts.

Try before you stock up with a 3lb or 5lb sample!!
