Coffee of the week - #09-17

May 16, 2017

Supreme Roastworks roasted this week's coffee for us. You seem to love this roaster, as many of you subscribe solely thanks to the fantastic coffee from Magnus and Odd Steinar. 

 Guji is a well known area for many coffee lovers and tells you that a fruity cup of coffee is coming you way. Sidamo (or Sidama - the latter refers to the Sidama people, the former is what used to be known as Sidamo province) covers a large area in Southern Ethiopia spreading through the fertile highlands south from Lake Awasa in the Rift Valley. It is made up of over 20 different administrative areas, or ‘woredas’, with varying microclimates and altitudes; accordingly, there is a big variety of both grades and cup profiles that end up labeled as Sidamo. 

 

For this particular coffee yous should look for a clean and floral taste with hints of bergamot. The aeropress brings out the best of it, but if you want less acidity V60 might be the better option.

Second coffee of the week comes from Colombia, offering a more classic feel and taste compared to the Ethiopian headliner. Tarqui is in the Central Cordillera of the Andes Mountains, with coffee growing in altitudes up to 2000 masl, and with rich and varied micro climates. In the northern part the main harvest is in July-August and the mitaka or mid-harvest is in November-December. In the southern parts this is reversed. This means it is possible to have fresh coffee in from Tarqui all year. The farmers are small, having 1-3 hectares each, and are often organized in groups.
