Ethiopia Nigusie Lemma, dry process

It's a mouthful... a tasty mouthful. Ethiopia Nigusie Lemma - our newest coffee being roasted on the San Franciscan at the boss' garage. Dry-processed coffees skip a certain "washing" step in the production process on the coffee farm. The coffee is laid out on large patios to dry in the sun, essentially allowing to sun's radiant power to "clean" the mucilage of the coffee cherry off of the beans. Dry-processed coffees boast sticky, fruity flavors that we like to call "jammy" with a muted acidity; earthy and chocolate notes are also present.

This particular coffee reminds us of toast, chocolate, and something between grape and blueberry jam!

Ask the guys and gals at the shop when there will be some available to drink or take home to enjoy! $14 for 12 oz. You're tastebuds will tell you it's a steal.

Hub Coffee Roasters

We're getting more and more into it! We've just received our second shipment of green (unroasted) coffee from a quality source, and we're roasting it all on our tiny one pound San Franciscan.

So far, we've achieved roasts on two coffees from Ethiopia and Sulawesi that we are pretty happy about. Clearly, you agree, because you all bought up our entire stock of the Ethiopia Wollega Leka Wato in a matter of weeks!

Stay tuned for more, and be sure to stop by to see about our Sulawesi Toarco Jaya, as well as a new dry processed Ethiopian coffee that has already begun to wow our tastebuds.
