Methodical Reserve brings you the rarest most unique coffee experiences from around the world. Available only in our 8oz reserve bags, this is a very limited release.

Typical processing for sun-dried natural Ethiopian coffees involves the coffee cherries being sorted, washed, and left on drying tables. For this process, one more very labor-intensive step is added. The cherries are contained in custom-fit big blue barrels and carefully sealed. What happens next is kind of like magic. As the coffees ferment, the carbon dioxide naturally off-gassed by the cherries pushes out the oxygen through a one way valve until the cherries are contained in an ultra low oxygen environment for a carefully-timed fermentation interval. Once the fermentation time has ended, the coffee cherries continue through the rest of the natural processing.

The producers of Keramo, who live high in the beautiful Bombe mountains, are so remote that the area does not have its own central washing station. They are part of a member organization consisting of 667 producers in various parts of the mountain range, which also include producers from Bombe and Shantawene. The coffees grown by Keramo farmers are unusually dense and small, which reflects the high elevations where the coffee is grown.

Stellar Ethiopian Coffee

This coffee has a very delicious flavor that is unique to coffee from Ethiopia. The blueberry tasting notes really come out and make for an enjoyable cup of coffee.

Fantastic

Best coffee I’ve had in a quite a while. First brew was like tiramisu and second cup, I was able to extract a little more and found those pineapple notes. I wish I could drink think coffee every day. Loved it so much I had to Tweet about it even.

This isn’t coffee. It’s blueberry juice.

Less lactic bite than other anaerobic coffees and a bright, juicy finish make this a perfect companion to a blueberry Dutch baby or ricotta pancakes topped with lemon curd. Magnificent.
