At last!! Fresh-crop washed Ethiopias have landed. The Aricha is a perfect example of the Yirgacheffe region: floral, sweet, and bright. You'll smell the classic bergamot orange when it's ground, but the cup boasts a terrific nectarine acidity. The Aricha is super sweet too; we taste a lot of honey and almost like a cobbler crumble. This is the best time of year for coffee, and the Aricha is such a great way to kick things off.

BREWING RECOMMENDATIONS

We serve this coffee as both espresso and drip in our shops.  We use 20g ground espresso to produce 40g brewed espresso in 28 to 30 seconds.  If you don't have a scale and the espresso is between 7 and 14 days old, just aim for a volume a little over 2.0 ounces for a double.  Please note this coffee is delicious as straight espresso but can get lost in milk; if you prefer a stronger espresso for milk drinks we recommend using the Blendo Stupendo. Of course, feel free to experiment with the parameters to find your perfect coffee.  If our parameters make the espresso tastes sour or bitter to you, just increase your brewed amount a few grams up if it's sour or a few grams down if it's bitter.  For our drip coffee, the parameters vary a little because we use a refractometer to control strength at 1.35% TDS, but if you don't have a refractometer just use about 15 grams of coffee for every 8 ounces of water.  Please contact us with any brewing related questions!
