    The Profile

    The Profile

    Hambela Wamena (Washed) is the latest of our new season Ethiopian coffees from our suppliers Nordic Approach, a coffee hunter that is renowned for sourcing some of the best coffees in the world.

    You may recognise the name of this coffee - we just finished our run of the Anaerobic version of the same lot. It's a super interesting exercise in the influence process has over the final flavour of a coffee.

    Flavourwise, Hambela Wamena is a well structured Ethiopian that brings complexity to every cup. With a lower acidity than you might expect for a washed Ethiopian, this is a coffee you'll never tire of drinking. It's silky smooth and sweet as can be, supported by a constant lovely floral base note. Best served black with time on your hands - you'll be savouring every drop.

    Brew tip: grind coarser than usual. A high extraction suits this coffee.
