This is the Ethiopia Chelba Natural brought to you by Cat & Cloud Coffee. Grown by the small holder producers in the Yirgacheffe region at 1,700 - 2,000 meters, this naturally processed coffee is a perfect example of why we love coffees from Ethiopia. This coffee is lighter in body and is particularly juicy with notes of blueberry, port wine and semi-sweet chocolate.
Right now probably a 4.5 when made with a kalita, 3.5 off of an aeropress. Full flavors appear when made by Kalita with the chocolate and blueberry/fruit flavor combining well.
Fully of berry aroma, juicy, acidic. Didn't quite get the chocolate smell but that should depend on the way I brew. A slight bitter flavor.
Grinder: virtuoso scale 20
42g water and wait 25 seconds.
Add water to 210g and let it drain
Add water again to 330g and serve.
An excellent coffee for those seeking pungent fruit scents and dark chocolate flavors. Also a very forgiving brew.
Just “ok.” Not really picking up the described tasting notes and not one of the better Yirgacheffes I’ve had.
Great solid coffee. Felt well balanced, but not as exceptional as a lot of Cat and Cloud's I've had.
Nice and light. Took a tiny bit of grind adjustment to figure it out but the lower range for brew method created beautiful flavors.
Wonderful flavor! Loved the smooth taste...Perfect combination of fruit and chocolate. Prefer this coffee blend over the first.
A little too much acidity on first sip, but once it cools off a little the fruity flavors become more evident.
This coffee didn't have a lot to offer flavor-wise. It had almost a burnt flavor to it. Not bad, but not great.
I could not feel any acidity not fruity notes
This was a very balanced cup of coffee. It had strong cherry and chocolate notes. I tend to find yirgacheffe’s to be a little over-powering but this finished incredibly smooth and was quite enjoyable.
Meh. Just not my fav.
Notes of blueberry, stone fruit with a chocolate finish. Less thick/syrupy than other Ethiopians. Fantastic.
Super acidic and not enjoyable
Best coffee I've had so far, heavy on the blueberry flavor. Brewed in a Clever
This is in the top 2-3 coffees we have tried out of the last year with MistoBox. Truly an excellent coffee with citrus and berry flavor bursting through in every sip.
Best flavor profile and brewing results so far. Excellent coffee, and great name!
Best coffee ever.
Wow! This ties Onyx's Bensa Shantawene Natural for our favorite natural Ethiopian. Beans have strong blackberry jam scent. Coffee is lighter, versus some more syrupy natural Ethiopias. Super clean finish with lingering balanced sweetness and tartness.
Nicely prevalent notes of berry - enjoyed making this cup in my new Chemex.
Well roasted with excellent fruity notes.
Nicely balanced. Could be a bit lighter on the flavor profile but this is a perfect bag for the rainy fall.
