In the beginning of the 60’s, the International Coffee Organization (ICO) established an identity code for each exporting country that, followed by the exporters code and the loading/shipping number, is stamped since then in each bag of coffee. As a small tribute to the history of the bag of coffee, Cafés El Magnífico wants to contribute perpetuating this traditional numeration.

THE FARM
This coffee, Grade 3 from Bedessa, Harrar district, in the Harari People’s National Region State (HPNRS) was harvested by the Chercher Oda Bultum Farmers Cooperative Union (COBFCU). The cooperative was founded in 2005 and has near to 15.000 members of which 5.000 are women. They grow 4000 Ha of fertile clayey soil.
PROCESS
Harvest takes place between October and December.

Harrar coffees are naturally processed (unwashed) which is the most basic kind of process. After picking, the cherries are nearly immediately spread out onto drying beds, thus allowing the sweetness of the cherry to be absorbed by the seed. This processing method is very common in regions with little access to water and dry climate. The cherries must be turned more regularly than washed processed coffees to avoid mould. Once dried, the beans are sorted in the dry mill.
CUPPING NOTES
Very pleasant fragrance of natural processed coffees, veggie notes, broth, sweet and woody. Aromas and flavors of orange peel, yeast, marzipan and gingerbread. Clean, crispy and silky. Licorice aftertaste.
ORIGIN
Harrar is worldwide renown, due to its great similarity to Yemen coffee, not only in its aspect but also in the way it is harvested.

Harrar coffee is produced between 1.700m – 2.700m. The type of soil is NITO and Acrisol, being this last one the dominant; it is of an intense brown red color and rich in volcanic ashes. Rainfalls are scarce; varying from 801 to 1.200mm, therefore the fruit is very resistant to drought. The coffee trees are grown in green oasis, with the shade of great Grevillea trees, and close to the water. The beans have a greenish ocher color beans are very characteristic of this region.

In general, these coffees have a winy and fruity acidity, complex aromas and full body. From the best Harrar you can smell and taste notes of blueberries or blackberries, spices, cocoa and broth.
