Ethiopian Recommendations

Recommended Posts

Turning 50 next weekend, and will need a lump of coffee, as one of my friends is an absolute fiend, and he will drink me out of home and house. 

He loves Ethiopian espresso , washed and natural , so looking for some recommendations. 

No Rocko mountain please. 

Off you go.

I'm sure@fatboyslim has a list of potential Ethiopian Naturals for you to choose from!

You could do alot worse than Yayu Wild Forest from Union.

If you're willing to go abroad:
Five Elephant's Biftu Gudina is a wonderful espresso. Canned peachy sweetness with black tea undertones.

Fjord in Berlin also have a bunch of washed and naturals.

looks good, shipping is quoted as 5 to 14 days , so might miss the deadline

I found it very nice & easy to dial in but marzipan is a bit of a weakness of mine. The last couple of times I've attempted to make stollen, I've failed dismally from eating all the marzipan first!

Gardelli has 4 Ethiopian to choose from ranging from 100Eur to 14. All look tasty.

I really enjoyed the one I had from HMC roasters Walichu Watchu

I really enjoyed the one included with the taster pack from Square mile. If I remember correctly it was the Dambi Udo

What about good old simple Yirgacheffe which should come out Floral, berry and chocolate with aromas of jasmine and citrus fruit. ;) Some of that defeats me though. Citrus chocolate vaguely yes.

Oh forgot to say earlier Root & Branch had a couple of great Ethiopians a little while ago. Really enjoyed them.

Nearest town: Yirgacheffe

Thought it might be. Stuff from a specified grower is unusual. Suspect I would go for washed though.

The 2 Ethiopians at Square Mile are fantastic, had them as part of the cupping they did. They're filter roast though so not sure if that's any good...? :)

Well, my vote goes to Crankhouse Boji Kochere but to my taste it's not dissimilar to a Rocko Mountain (which I like) so horses for courses and all that. Happy birthday in advance!
