- Onyx Coffee Lab
- Ethiopia Kercha
This coffee literally (maybe not literally) jumped off our cupping table in late May. We were tasting about 25 new Ethiopian samples and had already made most of our purchases for the year, and to be honest, we were cupping without much hope until we hit this Kercha. Unbelievably sweet, loud florality, and extreme earl grey and bergamot notes came from the cup. While these notes may seem in tune with high-quality lots from the Sidamo region, they usually have a thinness in the cup. This coffee has a thick creamy body to go along with these notes and achieves that rare form of balance while still being exciting.
