We bring you another show stopping Ethiopian to tantalise your taste buds, named the Dombeya from Ethiopias famed Guji Zone. The Dombeya gets its name from an umbrella shaped tree native to the region. Fittingly named due to its use shading this coffee from the elements throughout its growth.
ABOUT THE GUJI ZONE
The Guji zone is blessed for bearing fertile soils 2000 masl providing great coffee farming conditions. Not only this, the local Oromo people have farmed coffee for generations, selectively hand harvesting the coffee cherries as experts of trade. Like many of Ethiopias finest coffees the Guji zone is famed for its sought after flavour profile of berries and florals.
Can you taste it?
Naturally processed the coffee cherries are dried whole to create a unique berry funk. The Dombeya showcases trademark Guji flavours with tasting notes of blueberry and strawberry with a decadent creamy finish. Think bright and creamy flavours reminiscent of a British cream tea.
African coffees are known for their brightness and extremely fruity nature. We recommend trying this coffee black to accentuate this, whether on filter or espresso. Of course if your prefer coffee with milk it still taste great, so each to their own.
We recommend consuming this coffee between weeks 2 to 4 after its roast date, but of course, try it before or after too.
