Natural processed Ethiopians are wilder and more gamey in taste. They usually have a sweetness to them and heavier body.

The beans are picked by the farmers and then spread out to dry in the sun. They are then raked around a couple of times a day but this also means that they are not dried evenly and this helps create the funky taste of Ethiopian natural. It's a proud tradition and it certainly packs a punch!

This one is full of flavours and very juicy. Naturals can often look untidy but they're awesome in flavour. In Ethiopia this is the preferred method and has always been the traditional means of processing coffee, due to a lack of water. Many smallholders and families pick their own coffee beans from wild coffee trees and put them out in their yards to dry. Try the Natural Guji it's an awesome find for us to bring to you!
