About this coffee
Sometimes all you can say about a coffee is, “Wow! This is a great!”. And that’s what we are saying about this new coffee, Shakiso, from the Sidamo region of Ethiopia. It’s just a really solid coffee all around. It’s got all the qualities you want from an Ethiopian: juicy, fruity, delicate acidity and it looks good doing it. (Honestly guys, it looks pretty much the same as the rest of the coffees, but I’ve heard it’s self conscious about its ‘body’.)
The Shakiso boasts a juicy body (No, we promise Shakiso, it’s looks really good!) like biting into a fresh peach and having all the delicious juice run down your chin. It’s delicate lime acidity hits your tongue as the crisp dark chocolate body rounds out a fantastically clean cup.
The Shakiso comes just in time for the beginnings of the holiday season and we are so glad it showed up.
