The washed, or “wet processed”, coffees of Yirgacheffe are prized for their delicate, tea-like aromatics and clean citrus flavor. Over the last few years producers in the Gedio region have been reinventing the natural process originally developed in Ethiopia to offer a very different profile from this well-known origin. The Misty Valley is a prime example of the fruitiness, complexity, and character of these Natural Yirgacheffe coffees.
In the cup, Misty Valley delivers a perfumed floral aroma that leads into a crisp and complex fruit basket flavor (strawberries, blueberries, raspberries). A milky body provides the backbone for the fruit and aromatics, creating an intense harmonious balance. The cup finishes with lingering, pleasant mouthfeel.
