Coming out of Ethiopia’s Eastern Highlands, this is one of the world’s oldest coffees still produced commercially. The beans are distinctive by their greenish/yellow colour and almost every process is done by hand.
Coffee beans from the Harrar region are categorised by their shape. Large beans are defined as Longberry, smaller beans as Shortberry and Pea berries as Mocha. The rise of the popularity of Ethiopian
coffee by roasters and consumers is being matched by the Ethiopian Government’s
involvement in the industry to ensure the quality and longevity of the coffee industry.
Local consumption in Ethiopia accounts for over half the annual production.
As with most Ethiopian grades, Longberry ‘East’ has the versatility to be used as both single
origin for espresso or as a filtered coffee.
