Ethiopian Harar Coffee from Buna Mobile Roasting Company

Ethiopian Harar Coffee from Buna Mobile Roasting Company
I'm always impressed with the flavors found in a properly roasted Ethiopian Coffee and this Ethiopian Harar Coffee from Buna Mobile Roasting Company is no exception.

Buna Mobile roasting company is a small batch roaster that specializes in roasting for fund raisers. You can find more information about their charities and fundraising on their website.

Looking at the beans waiting to be ground some are at the City roast level while others are City+.

Once ground, the coffee has a pleasant aroma of sweet blueberries and as water is introduced for the pour-over the same sweet blueberry aroma fills the room.

From the cup, the first sips are sweet, yet at the same time tart with a full bodied syrupy mouthfeel. The aftertaste is a bit acidic, but I'll call it well balanced because it's supported by the sweet blueberry notes.

The flavors are rich, bold and intense. Hot, the coffee tastes like blueberry syrup with a hint of chocolate. As the coffee cools in the cup it takes on a rich chocolate covered blueberry flavor. The natural sweetness in this coffee is remarkable. It's the sweetest coffee I have reviewed.

I feel this Ethiopian Harar Coffee would be amazing to sip with a chocolate desert or as an after dinner desert all by itself. The City-City+ roast level seems perfect for these beans.
