Ethiopia Misty Valley
The washed coffees of Yirgacheffe have long been prized for their delicate, tea-like aromatics and clean citrus flavor. Recently, producers in the Gedeo region have been reinventing the natural process originally developed in Ethiopia to offer a completely different profile from this well-known origin. Misty Valley is a prime example of the fruitiness, complexity, and character of the natural process of Yirgacheffe coffees.
Developed by exporter, Abdullah Bagersh, Misty Valley is subject to an incredible amount of care from start to finish. When the ripe cherries are first brought to the mill to dry on raised African beds, they are constantly turned (day and night!) for the first 48 hours of drying to ensure an even evaporation of the moisture from the cherry. This lends a consistency and cleanliness to the cup, which can prove difficult in a process prone to mold and uneven air circulation. After the coffee is fully dried and the skin, mucilage, and parchment removed, it is sorted and sold to coffee roasters clamoring at the chance to purchase these prodigious beans.
In the cup, Misty Valley truly delivers what you'd expect of a world-renowned coffee. A perfumed floral aroma leads into a crisp and complex fruit basket flavor. Milky body provides the backbone for the fruit and aromatics, creating a harmonious balance. The cup finishes with lingering, pleasant mouthfeel.
