New Ethiopia Organic Halo Bariti Addisu Kidane Raised Bed Natural!

Somewhat unusually, this is a micro-lot Yirgacheffe from a single farmer, Addisu Kidane. He has been working the farm since he was a child, inheriting it from his father, and he supports his family of 8 (!) children through the production of the excellent microlots. He is a member of the Halo Bariti coop, which he takes his cherries to for processing. I love buying coffees like this that have a direct impact on an individual and his family, and it's not hard to justify, at all: this coffee is wild! Fruity, fudgey, and bodaciously herbacious, this coffee starts out as expected of a natural Yirg, with peach and plum, but wait for it! It goes hard into winey Pinot, fudgey dark chocolate, herbal notes, light floral honeyed notes....this coffee is exciting, and will make for some gonzo espresso for the adventurous types.
