Sure other countries have one or two star players, but basketball was born in America and coffee was born in Ethiopia. Where other coffee-growing countries are dealing with a handful of plant varieties and maybe a century or two of growing, Ethiopia is home to thousands of native varieties and thousands of years of cultivation. As a result, generalizing about Ethiopian coffees is like generalizing about the playing style of the entire NBA. But hey, let’s give it a go! Roughly, we can divide the country’s coffees up by the two dominant processing types. Dry-processed Ethiopians, like those in the eastern region of Harar, often pack a wild, fruity flavor and sweetness, frequently likened to blueberries or wine. Washed Ethiopians—common in the Sidama region, and its famed subregion of Yirgacheffe—tend to be lighter-bodied and, especially in Yirgacheffe, are defined by intense floral aromas and citric acidity. Down in Kenya, processing is a big deal. The country has its own twist on washed processing, which involves two fermentations, followed by soaking the beans in water. Add that to the aforementioned SL-28 and SL-34 varieties, which make up a lot of Kenya’s coffee, and you get a cup that is typically intensely acidic but also sweet and fruity, often with the varietals’ signature black currant flavor. Coffees from Burundi and Rwanda tend to be similar to Kenyans, albeit slightly more muted, and sometimes a little floral and Ethiopian-esque. SOLO CUP Like packs of disposable razors from the grocery store, coffee beans usually come two-for-one in each coffee cherry. But sometimes—maybe five percent of the time— the beans mutate, and you get a single, more round-shaped bean instead. These are known as “peaberries” (or caracol in Spanish, which means “snail”). Producers from various regions will sometimes separate out these beans, and sell them as a distinct product (often with a distinctly higher price tag to match). But perhaps nowhere does this quite so prolifically as Tanzania—to the point where “Tanzanian coffee” and “peaberry coffee” are basically synonymous in many people’s minds. Are they actually that different from regular Tanzanian coffees (which are roughly akin to those of Burundi and Rwanda)? Some think they’re more complex, maybe a little brighter, some don’t. Either way, there is nothing mind-blowingly special about them, no. Producers often sort the peaberries out from their regular harvests anyway because their unique size and shape means they roast differently than regular beans. Milling Around Now we’ve completed our brief world tour of where all this is taking place, let’s get back to the production process. The beans have finished all the processing that will take place at the farm level (this stage is called “wet milling,” by the way, but between wet processing and wet hulling, this is a monumentally unhelpful term. The next stage, you will be shocked to learn, is called “dry milling. ”) After this, the beans are usually left to chill out in storage for a month or so to strengthen up and get their moisture levels right so they can withstand travel and roasting.
