Ethiopia Filter-Roast Coffee Beans
Our recently arrived Ethiopia Filter roast is from the famous Yirgacheffe region.
We have chosen an entire natural Grade 1 varietal for the intense aromatics and powerful fruit complexity.
Prepared on our specialized filter roast platform using a precise roast profile, this Ethiopia Filter Roast displays fabulous florals, a fruit medley, and a rich boysenberry finish.
Suitable for all types of alternative brew methods and applications that require a lighter roast depth.
As a lighter roasted bean, it could be more suited to milk-based espresso (or dairy alternatives used in espresso) beverages.
The body and finish of lighter roasted coffees may be less deep or rich than traditional medium or espresso roasts.
Lighter roasted coffees, generally called "filter style," are not as "soluble" when used for espresso brewing.
A lighter roasted coffee is more challenging to use in espresso situations.
However, if you own a high-quality grinder and espresso machine with good skills to "dial in" accurate grind and dose, espresso enthusiasts will be rewarded with the sweetest and most glorious extractions.
How we roast this filter-style coffee is precisely engineered to reduce the effort of "working for it" when chasing that god shot.
We have developed our filter-style roasts significantly to help reduce the usual frustrations many people experience with espresso extractions.
The results are exceptional.
Our Filter Roast is ideal for customers using any contemporary or alternative brewing styles, such as Aeropress, Syphon, Moccamaster, Pour Over (such as a V60), or Cold Drip.
This lot is a natural coffee presenting powerful and attractive aromatics combined with enhanced fruit cup complexity.
The flavor notes of the boysenberry and fruit medley are delicious.
Why "Filter roast" is different from typical espresso roast
When roasting coffee for filter style, the profile is gentle, particularly in the "drying" phase in the early stage of the roast.
The middle section of the roast is similar to a medium or espresso roast, particularly mallard.
However, it's around 1st crack that things take a different turn, and we prepare to exit the roast by carefully managing the heat and finish temp.
Filter-style roasts are lighter in shade (color) and will not have the same body as a medium or espresso roast.
In milk, a filter-style roast may lack flavors and finish. Acid levels are significantly higher, and some dairy alternatives may "react" adversely to these higher acids in the lighter roasted coffees.
If you add milk to your coffee, please consider one of our medium-roasted coffees, as they will perform better with dairy or dairy alternatives. You can see more of our Ethiopian coffee beans here.
We love drinking this coffee in any alternative brew application.
A few of our team members are espresso-only enthusiasts and they just adore using this Ethiopian filter style roast as their daily cup.
Lighter roast levels result in the natural fruit elements intensifying.
It's important to expertly develop the bean during the roast without introducing roast notes.
Filter coffee is the best way to enjoy the clarity and original characteristics developed by brewing the coffee with a clean extraction of the coffee oils.
Our Filter Roast is prepared on a specialized hand-roasted smaller platform - dedicated to precise filter roasting.
