The washed coffees of Yirgacheffe

have long been prized for their delicate, tea-like aromatics and clean citrus flavor. Recently, producers in the Gedio region have been reinventing the natural process originally developed in Ethiopia to offer a completely different profile from this well-known origin. The Misty Valley is a prime example of the fruitiness, complexity, and character of these Natural Yirgacheffe coffees.

Developed by exporter and producer partner Abdullah Bagersh,

the Natural Misty Valley is subject to an incredible amount of care from start to finish. When the ripe cherries are first brought to the mill to dry on raised African beds, they are constantly turned (day and night!) for the first 48 hours of drying to ensure an even evaporation of the moisture from the cherry.

This lends a consistency and cleanliness to the cup, which can prove difficult in a process prone to mold and uneven air circulation.

After the coffee is fully dried

and the skin, mucilage, and parchment removed, it is sorted and traded through the Ethiopian Coffee Exchange as a Grade 1 Yirgacheffe.

In the cup, the Misty Valley truly delivers. A perfumed floral aroma leads into a crisp and complex fruit basket flavor. Milky body provides the backbone for the fruit and aromatics, creating a harmonious balance. The cup finishes with lingering, pleasant mouthfeel.

Roasted Perfection

When you open the bag, the aroma is amazing and when you see these beans you know right away this is a 5 star roast. In an espresso these blueberry notes just pop. I've had this as a pour over, drip and Americano and there is no wrong way to make this coffee. This is now a regular on my brew bar.

So Smooth

We had the 12oz. whole-bean Misty Valley. As soon as this coffee arrived, we opened the bag and the kitchen was immediately filled with a fresh blended aroma of coffee and chocolate covered fruits. Our bag was filled to the brim with beans! We made our first pot, and decided to taste it black before adding anything to it. It has a light natural flavor with a hint of chocolate and fruity vibes. It is very rare for me to find coffee that I can tolerate drinking black as most coffees tend to feel like they are burning a hole in my gut. This is the first time that I felt adding cream or sugar to the coffee might actually take away from the drinking experience. It is So Smooth that if I were tasting the coffee blindfolded, I might guess that it had cream in it. Personally, I never add sugar to my coffee, but I did add cream to this coffee and it is tastes great like that as well.

If you are looking for a smooth high-quality coffee with nuanced natural flavors at a competitive price, consider your search over.

wow, thanks so much for the detailed review! So happy you enjoyed it :)
