Tayachew and Akebe Guiday, Cuppers
These two guys have immense experience with Harar coffees, tasting a few this day, but sometimes up to 70 lots ore more at peak of harvest. I think they were pleased that I was very calibrated with them: there were 2 good lots, one with no defect cups, and another with 2 defect cups. Some of the lots where highly variable and very defective ... meaning intense mold, dirt, peanut flavor etc. It goes back to the quality of the prep by the farmers, and the fact it is late season, with perhaps a lot of coffee picked from the ground.
