Michiti is a cooperative in the far Western are of Ethiopia called Kaffa, where coffee is said to originate. The last two years they've paid record dividends to farmers after the harvest, based on the premium price we paid for their coffee. They deserve it!
Light Roast Observations: The dry fragrance has a delicate sweetness, honey graham cracker and cinnamon. Acidity is moderate, like the brightness found in a ripe peach, and a mouthfeel akin to black tea.
Dark Roast Observations: With a little more roast, there is a chocolate brownie note too, along with canned peach or mango accents and a hefty brown sugar sweetness. Body is extremely thick at this roast level weighing heavy on the palate, and lending to a very long, sweet finish.
