Bird Rock Coffee Roasters is a seasonal coffee roaster, offering single-origin beans that change throughout the year based upon the harvests of theses various coffee-producing countries.
The first of the fresh-crop Ethiopia coffees are starting to roll in. Here we have a dry-processed micro-lot from the village of Shakiso.
Grown at over 1800 meters, this coffee leans towards exotic. Allowed to open up, the coffee blooms with fresh guava and black raspberry; luscious tropical fruit and some spice, clove perhaps, balances well with subtle nectarine.
We are proud to announce that Coffee Review scored this coffee an astounding 95.
