Rosetta Roastery are known for their wonderful Ethiopian offerings. Their Yirgacheffes in particular are among our customers' favourites, and also very near and dear to our hearts. They tend to be archetypal, washed, delicate floral affairs - appreciated for their elegant tea-like qualities. This Ethiopian offers something completely different.

Dimtu Tero is a naturally-processed coffee, which means the beans were dried in their fruit rather than stripped of it before drying. This way of processing imparts more body, sweetness and fruitiness, and this is clearly evident in the cup. On the other hand, this coffee is much lower in acidity than your typical washed Yirgacheffe, so it offers something different to try. The flavours are very much of the stone fruit variety with some subtle hints of berries.

Roaster's notes

Style: Progressive
Sweet peach fruit, over tart strawberry and apricot acidity.

“How are you?” she asked, turning to face him. “Doing the best I can”, he replied. “Me, too!” she chuckled, shaking a little in her berry red robe. “Well, I reckon that’s about all there is to it,” replied Hoke, “but, you haven’t finished your Thanksgiving pie!” He leant over to carve out a mouthful of apricot & caramel crust.

Natural coffees are always pretty explosive at first crack, so once we're into the caramelisation temperature band, we pull off all heat, and just free wheel through to drop out.

Coffee details

Dimtu Tero Farm stretches over 150 hectares of the Odo Shakiso District. Its founder, Getachew Zeleke, has set himself the ambitious goal of becoming the benchmark for quality, traceability, and sustainability in the Guji zone. To achieve this goal, he works hand-in-hand with quality-conscious smallholder farmers in the surrounding villages, offering them interest-free loans, agricultural training, and improved coffee seedlings. He also ensures that there are quality-driven premiums paid above the standard market price for coffee. Coffee production and processing are done in an organic, socially responsible and environmentally friendly manner.
