Mormora Farm is our our first dried-in-fruit natural from Ethiopia that we’ve had the pleasure to roast. We’ve evaluated several profiles and found one that delivered a lovely rounded coffee with notes of chocolate, mulberry, cane sugar, strawberry guava, and hints of Cointreau (without being especially boozy).
From our importing partner Genuine Origin:
Mormora Farm’s 200 hectares are mainly comprised of coffees grown under the shade of a forest canopy. Handpicked coffee cherries are delivered to the processing station. After hand-sorting to remove any unripe, overripe, or damaged fruit, the coffee is laid to dry in direct sunlight on raised beds. Cherries are turned frequently to promote even drying over the course of three weeks. The Guji region came into the spotlight in the early 2000s when it was discovered that coffee from Guji exhibited unique and distinctive characters that set it apart from its Yirgacheffe and Sidamo neighbors. The landscape is semi-forest, and the coffee trees benefit from the natural canopy and the decomposing foliage debris. The variety of
microclimates within Guji alone encourages the development of diverse flavor profiles that present beautifully as both filter and espresso coffee.
