Unreal classic Harar blueberry aroma, very clean and sweet fruit/ferment and milk chocolate notes with a long Pinot Noir like finish. Harar as it should be.
Beautiful sweet/lemon and caramel aroma at the break
Powerful, bright and juicy acidity that turns to tropical fruit and lemon
Big dry finish
This coffee is amazing.
QC cupping results:
Very, very clean cup
easily one of the cleanest coffees we have tasted this year
looking forward to the second part of this cupping.
floral citrus, pine and tropical fruit notes in the aroma
1-27-10 Initial cupping of Ethiopian Yirgacheffe AMB production roast.
Fragrance (dry) – Dark chocolate, sweet oak
Aroma (wet) – Candied Myer lemon peel, bitter chocoalte
Body – Light/Medium
Acidity – Up front and moving into creamy molasses notes
Flavor – Very complex ride for your palate. Citrus is sweet lemon, moving into very creamy boozy pear with milky chocolate notes in the finish
AMB Longberry Harar, American roast + 24 hours: This is not the M.A.O. Harar that up until now was our standard. It seems that with the corruption in the Ethiopian coffee industry some coffees may no longer be available. I am afraid that M.A.O. Harar will no longer be available.
The aroma of this Harar is lighter with a slight sweet fruit punch like aroma, medium bodied with a juicy sweetness (almost Korate-like) that ends with a very winey finish.
Although not the flavor profile you would expect, the coffees from Ethiopia are in flux and will change. We have come to love this coffee.
