From the Roaster:  

Ethiopian ‘Jemjem’ is a naturally processed coffee with a creamy and silky body. It has sweet, tea-like flavors, which are classically found in coffees from the Yirga Cheffe region. These flavors include lilac, strawberry, passionfruit, and lemon verbena.

We’re always on the hunt for coffees that really shine and blow us away - Ethiopian ‘Jemjem’ did just that. While most Ethiopian coffees come from co-ops and are a collection of beans from multiple small farms, this coffee was grown by a single producer on one, slightly larger, farm. This means that green coffee they produce has been grown in a manner that provides greater precision in developing the flavor profile of the coffee. In addition to more intentional growing practices, this coffee is more selectively picked and then dried on raised beds. The drying process takes a bit longer at this farm, which is beneficial to the coffee in developing its flavors and quality. They spread the coffee out on the raised-beds in one layer, rather than the common practice of laying down multiple layers that need to be turned/stirred to make sure the coffee dries evenly. The care and control that the farmers use when producing this coffee is truly something that comes through when tasting the final product - a clean, refined, and delicious brew.

I have been a subscriber since their launch, having been introduced to Better Grounds at a coffee festival. I have enjoyed every monthly selection so far! Their service is a great choice for anyone who, like me, wants easier access great quality coffee and anyone who might feel overwhelmed trying to look into the sourcing bonafides of different brands. I appreciate that they do this work for their clients, and also support different roasters who are doing good work.
