Ethiopia Worka Anaerobic Yeast Fermented Dry ProcessMy Friend's Coffee
Rhubarb, Strawberry, Watermelon Candy, Milk Chocolate, Fermented Florals
If you like fruit-forward Ethiopian coffees, look no further. This one is like a strawberry rhubarb pie, sweet and jammy with enough complexity to please mathematician. It comes from one of Ethiopia's most celebrated micro-regions, but it's not just your average dry (natural) processed coffee. Instead, it's the brew-child of some bold experimental processing.
The Anaerobic Yeast Fermentation at-work here packs more twists than a SoCal canyon. First, cherries are hand-selected and floated for ripeness, then they're placed in an oxygen deprived setting along with a helping of brewer's yeast. Days of fermentation follow, capped by weeks of sun-drying that lends the coffee volcanic tones: intense fruits, sweetness for miles, and a telltale note of ferment from the processing. It's a head-spinning cup and pretty much the definition of a specialty brew.
