Ethiopian Harars Go Chocolate
Weather patterns and climate changes might play a large role in the cup profiles of coffees from the Harar region for the past 2 years.
Sometime back, we chanced on a wonderful Harar that was very light-bodied with incredible flowery-jasmine aromatics. It was tea like, but not a wimpy cup by any standards. Since that time, Harars have tended toward flavor profiles with deeper hues; intense chocolate notes with stronger earthiness, and fruity aromatics lingering way in the background.
