I was so excited to get a roast of the Ethiopia Deri Kochoha from Mark Michaelson of Onyx Coffee Labs in Fayetteville, Arkansas. It was a lovely roast of the coffee with so much of the honey sweetness paired with ginger and citrus that popped out in the brew. Mark reached out to me to ask how the coffee was, and so I turned it around on him and barraged him with questions about his approach to roasting.

Mark M: what did you think of it?

What Goes Into Producing Top Ethiopian Coffees Aleco Chicounis

Ethiopias

With 4 offering from Ethiopia currently on the list, I thought it would be fun to cup them all together and share them with a few others to see what they thought about them all together and on their own. With two coffees from Shakiso, one from Sidama, and one from Kochere (which is also Dry Processed), we have a fairly diverse selection to look at. It was a lot of fun to watch some folks cup these coffees from warm to cool, and to see the differences begin to show up in the cup. Obviously the first detectable difference was between the washed and dry processed coffees.
