Coffee: Dambi Uddo
Producer/Farm: Dambi Uddo and other smallholders
Altitude: 2000-2160 masl
Tasting Notes: This is a lush fruity natural that delivers clean succulent flavors of strawberry, mango, lemon-honey, and apricots. There are other flavors here too as this is a complex cup: coconut, pineapple, rhubarb and tea. The aftertaste is refreshingly clean even a bit minty. This is not your typical muddle fruit natural but a clean, juicy, balanced coffee with citric acidity and a lovely bittersweet balance.
Roaster’s notes: Dambi Uddo is the name for the kabele where both the farm of the same name and the drying station are located. It is a semi-forest farm on approximately 250 hectares of land that processes its own coffee along with coffee from other smallholders in the area. Dambi Uddo is located in the Guji highlands with an average altitude of 2,050 meters. This is easily the cleanest and most balanced naturally processed coffee we have cupped this season.
Brew recommendations: The fruitiest and cleanest cup was brewed on Origami with a V60 filter with a TBT of around 3:30 mins. I used my typical pour-over protocol which is posted here.
