Misty Valley Natural - Ethiopia

Subscription Interval
Current stock: 0

Cup Characteristics: Strawberry Sweetness, Citrus Acidity, Milk Chocolate Finish



The washed coffees of Yirgacheffe have long been prized for their delicate, tea-like aromatics and clean citrus flavor. Recently, producers in the Gedio region have been reinventing the natural process originally developed in Ethiopia to offer a completely different profile from this well-known origin. The Misty Valley is a prime example of the fruitiness, complexity, and character of these Natural Yirgacheffe coffees.

Developed by exporter and producer partner Abdullah Bagersh, the Natural Misty Valley is subject to an incredible amount of care from start to finish. When the ripe cherries are first brought to the mill to dry on raised African beds, they are constanly turned (day and night!) for the first 48 hours of drying to ensure an even evaporation of the moisture from the cherry. This lends a consistency and cleanliness to the cup.

Delicious and consistent

This is my go to coffee bean! Love it. It really strikes the balance for me for roast. I'd say roast is medium, but I don't pretend to be an expert. Not too dark, not too light. Shipping is always quick. I brew in a Technivorm or Aeropress and grind in an Ode Gen 2 in case that helps make the decision... but I'm pretty sure it would still taste better than "store bought" even if it was filtered through a dirty sock :). Thanks for the delicious cup EVERY MORNING!!!

Misty Valley Ethiopia

Fantastic coffee

very very tasty

Brewing with a v60, slightly finer grind (kosher salt vs sea salt). Complex flavors with hints of berry fruits. Pairs nicely with a little half and half or not. I was very happy to be able to re order this

Easy-going and tempting to drink all day

I'm a big fan of Ethiopian coffees: they've got a unique flavor I haven't found anywhere else (though a Fijian blend I tried a time ago came close). This medium-light bodied roast has a nice non-acidic sweet berry taste with a little chocolate flavor throughout and such a warm, clean finish that your mug is empty before you know it. My brewing process (posted for science, not for criticism): 40g whole beans, hand-ground coarse for French press (coarser than standard) plus a pinch of sea salt. ~700mL steam-distilled water heated to 180°F. Bloom thrice (10 second intervals between each) and steep for 10-12 minutes.

Your choice - drink as a treat or drink daily

This is truly one of the finest coffees. I enjoy this coffee daily when I have it, because I just can't stop once I've opened the bag! It's smooth with berry and chocolate components that I enjoy.
