“African Sunrise” (a “Straight Up Coffee”) is a single origin (not a blend) coffee from Ethiopia that is a light Americana roast. African Sunrise is a perfect breakfast coffee. It’s based on the same beans as our dark roasted Ethiopian Kaffa which yields a bright, wonderfully smooth coffee with a nose of lemon and vanilla. Very silky and refined mouthfeel. Lavender, citrus, black tea, lively acidity and creamy body. It has an extremely clean finish. And, because it’s a light roast it’s naturally higher in caffeine so it’s a perfect morning coffee.
FYI… This coffee is in our “Straight Up Coffee” line-up which means that it is a 100% Arabica coffee (no flavor enhancers, just coffee) for our customers who prefer a more straightforward forward approach to coffee. If you are more of a purist and prefer straight-up coffee without any flavor enhancers (extracts, etc.) then our “Straight Up Coffee” line-up is what you are looking for.
