Ethiopia Guji Mormora Organic Natural
Blind Assessment: Crisply sweet-tart, cocoa-toned. Narcissus, cocoa nib, raspberry, tangerine zest, white peppercorn in aroma and cup. Sweet-tart structure with gently bright acidity; delicate, very silky mouthfeel. The cocoa-toned finish is supported by undertones of tangerine zest and white peppercorn.
Notes: Southern Ethiopia coffees like this one are produced from traditional Ethiopian varieties of Arabica long grown in the region. Certified USDA organic and processed by the natural method (dried in the whole fruit).

The Bottom Line: A subtly spice-driven, cocoa-toned natural-processed Ethiopia cup with pleasing notes of fresh raspberry throughout.
About the Coffee
Mormora is a 200 hectare farm, the majority of which is semi- forest coffee, which means the forest has been managed to allow coffee to grow in it. The trees benefit from a natural shade plants who’s leaves provide protection from the sun and, when they fall to the ground, decompose and enrich the soil.
Each harvest, hundreds of smallholders in the area deliver coffee to Mormora’s washing station. These smallholders generally have 1–2 hectares lf land under coffee. Mormora pays for the cherry, but adds a quality premium.
