Origin:Kembata, Ethiopia Producer: Durame Village Variety:Ethiopian Heirloom Elevation: 2,100 meters Process:natural Roast: medium roast We taste: strawberry, kiwi, dark chocolate
This offering comes from the Durame Village in southern Ethiopia, where the coffee is cultivated in soil ideal for growing high quality beans. This particular lot is a natural process —with the fruit left on the coffee cherry as it dries in the sun, it has delightful notes of strawberry and kiwi, finishing with hints of decadent dark chocolate.
While we were pondering over the name of our second coffee, we came across the Korean word Noeul (노을), describing the glowing sun as it sets at the end of the day. As we move forward in this new year with change in the leadership of our country, Noeul fills us with hope for a brighter tomorrow—just as the sun gives way to a time of reflection and rest under a clear, starry night. If our second offering could play even a small part in reminding all of us to take a moment to breathe before engaging in the work that remains ahead of us, we would be grateful.
