We’ve had some pretty spectacular fruit-dried natural Ethiopias this season, and this coffee retained plenty of its original character all the way through decaffeination. Characterized by its unmistakable berry flavor, it’s an easy coffee to enjoy, with the added benefit of being caffeine-free.The coffee was sourced from smallholder farmers in Ethiopia’s Sidama region. Drying coffee in the cherry, as was the case here, is the original tradition in Ethiopia. Natural or dry-process, fruit-dried or cherry-dried – however you prefer to talk about this style of ‘zero-process’ coffee post-harvest production, it all comes back to Ethiopia. While farmers across the globe still practice this method of letting the coffee fruit dry like raisins around the seed, it all started in here. It’s still common to see smallholder farmers drying their daily harvest on their porches or lawns across the country. Unlike much of the rest of the world, many of these farmers will then roast and grind their own harvest – Ethiopia is the world’s only coffee producing country whose volume of consumption equals its export.
