Aromas of creamy lush vanilla and cherry pipe tobacco in a wood panelled library with flavors of pomegranate, orange, coconut and creamy vanilla. As an espresso, a smooth bright grapefruit citrus with an undercurrent of pomegranate, coconut and vanilla; a lot like a Beaujolais wine.

Description

Asikana Ethiopia CoffeeWe are happy to have a new coffee from Ethiopia to share with you. Ethiopia Asikana Specialty Coffee comes from the Asikana Cooperative. It is a natural process USDA certified organic and Smithsonian Migratory Bird Center shade grown bird friendly coffee. The Asikana (it means “we start from here” in the local Oromia language) co-op was established in 2008. All their coffees are natural process because Asikana has no wet mill facility. Once the coffee is dried the women of the co-op hand sort the coffee to ensure only the best quality beans are bagged for export.

In the cup Ethiopia Asikana Specialty Coffee has aromas of creamy lush vanilla and cherry pipe tobacco in a wood panelled library with flavors of pomegranate, orange, coconut and creamy vanilla. We loved it as a pour over. After letting it rest for about a week we tried it as an espresso. The natural process of Asikana Specialty Coffee gave it a smooth bright grapefruit citrus with an undercurrent of pomegranate, coconut and vanilla, a lot like a Beaujolais wine.

Asikana Coffee, Ethiopian Specialty Coffee

The founders of Ethiopia Asikana Specialty Coffee, Mr. Bodja Gelalcha and his family have deep community ties with the area stretching back for over 200 years. Natural process coffee cultivation is an integral part of life in the rural country. Bodja, the eldest son of a farmer, in a family of four boys and two girls, with a huge thirst for knowledge and education, grabbed the opportunity for schooling at an early age.

Having finished his Master’s degree in developmental studies, he worked in various development projects that equipped him with a fundamental vision of improving living standards.  It was by educating his native community in the production value of high quality natural process coffee that Asikana Specialty Coffee was established. Asikana coffee was founded by Mr. Bodja, his wife, their five children and their spouses. Ethiopia Asikana Specialty Coffee stays true to its belief that true sustainable development starts from here- the farmers, the community and the land.

    Enveloping woody flavors, delightful red wine, and a smoothy coconutty note tying it together. Super unique, super delicious.

    All coffee from cosmic are wonderful, but Ethiopia is my current favorite, it’s perfect for pour over, the after taste has a wonderful citrus flavor.
