Umpire Estate Ethiopian

 

Review of Umpire Estate Ethiopian Raphael House Coffee

The medium dark roast balances what can often be an intense berry tone, typical of Ethiopian coffees. The flavour is a nice balance of a winy/berry tone, medium body, with a flowery finish. To enjoy it to its maximum it should be slurped up on the tongue. This coffee can be enjoyed hot or cold, with or without flavourings. It stands up well in all circumstances. It will pair well with spicy foods such as Indian or Asian cuisine. I recommend following the instructions on the bag for freshness with the exception of the one about freezing. Coffee does not freeze well and would do better being put in an airtight ceramic jar. A portion of the proceeds of the sale of this coffee goes to the Raphael House in San Francisco.
