Mindblower Ethiopia Uraga Anaerobic Natural

Intense flavors of blackberry, blueberry and cabernet wine; that will blow your mind. Our newest Ethiopian Anaerobic Natural. Uraga station employees select only ripe, red cherry for Anaerobic Natural processing. The sealed, oxygen-less environment encourages specific microbial interactions, often resulting in bright, fruity naturals with complex floral and citrus notes.

Farmers selectively handpick ripe cherry and deliver it to the station. At intake, employees visually inspect cherry and accept only fully ripe cherry for anaerobic fermentation. Selected cherry is tightly packed in GrainPro bags and sealed shut. Cherry ferments anaerobically (without oxygen) for 18 to 24 hours.

After fermentation, cherry is carefully removed from bags and laid to dry in direct sunlight on raised beds. Workers turn cherry frequently to promote even drying. It takes approximately 2 to 3 weeks for cherry to dry. Grades in Ethiopia depend on visual inspection for defects and on cup quality. Grade 1 is considered the highest quality coffee. Grade 1 and 2 are considered specialty coffee, grade 3-9 are classified as commercial coffee. Grade 1 is free of cup faults and taints and has zero quakers.

Our in-country partner has been experimenting with new processing methods as a way to increase value and stand out among a growing number of specialty washing stations in Ethiopia. They have been trialing anaerobic fermentation with several of their washing stations in Yirgacheffe since 2015. Uraga washing station receives cherry from farmers in the surrounding region. The station is located in Guji, a coffee growing region that was once part of Yirgacheffe but whose microclimate produces such unique coffee, that it was allocated as its own coffee growing region. Farming methods in the region remain largely traditional. Guji farmers typically intercrop their coffee plants with other food crops. This method is common among smallholders because it maximizes land use and provides food for their families. In addition to remaining traditionally intercropped, most farms are also organic-by-default.

Farmers in Guji typically use very few—if any—fertilizers or pesticides. Most farm work is done manually by the immediate family. To capitalize on the magnificent climate, Uraga washing station provides training to help farmers produce better quality cherry. Training focuses on procedures for harvesting and transporting cherry. While Ethiopia is famous as coffee’s birthplace, today it remains a specialty coffee industry darling for its incredible variety of flavors. While full traceability has been difficult in recent history, new regulations have made direct purchasing possible. We’re partnering directly with farmers to help them produce top quality specialty lots that are now completely traceable, adding value for farmers and roasters, alike. The exceptional quality of Ethiopian coffee is due to a combination of factors. The genetic diversity of coffee varieties means that we find a diversity of flavor, even between (or within) farms with similar growing conditions and processing. In addition to varieties, processing methods also contribute to end quality.

The final key ingredients for excellent coffee in Ethiopia are the producing traditions that have created the genetic diversity, processing infrastructure and great coffee we enjoy today. Most producers in Ethiopia are smallholders, and the majority continue to cultivate coffee using traditional methods. As a result, most coffee is grown with no chemical fertilizer or pesticide use. Coffee is almost entirely cultivated, harvested and dried using manual systems.

Best Coffee I've Ever Had

I drink way too much coffee and try single origin coffees from many different roasters. I order from Klatch specifically because of the unique and flavorful natural and ASD coffees they roast. Keep doing what you're doing!

Incredible value

As far as fruity delicious Ethiopian coffees go, this one is great. I would love to hear tasting notes from Klatch, with recipe information given (dose, water temp, target PPM and target extraction time) for each of these high quality coffees. I don’t often order enough to really dial it in myself since I’m only able to drink one cup per day due to my body not being able to handle as much caffeine these days, so getting info from the pros is useful for me to get close to what Klatch intends the coffee to taste like. Thanks!

Not my favorite.

First let me say that I like klatch and trust them to do a great job. My issue is not with klatch on this one. I just don't like the beans. First, the tasting notes are spot on. Blueberry blackberry and Cabernet. I should have taken them more to heart. The 3 of them are just waaaayyy too intense for me. I'm on a roll lately. I have a variety of recent roasts crowding my counter from other roasters that I am not loving. I have taken to mixing this with an Ethiopian yerg to try and mellow out this one. I'm going to be drinking coffee I'm not in love with for the entire month of March. I think I will be more cautious with anaerobics going forward. I want to reiterate that I still like klatch and trust them to provide beans that are at their best and roasted consistently and to bring out the origin taste. This is one where it just was not for me. But it might be for you.

Best since Yemen

Terrific bean and roast. By far my favorite since Klatch’s 2021 Yemen. Total fruit bomb, and if your pull over extracts, you wind up with a fruity IPA flavor.

Berry Blast

One of the most berry forward flavors that are prevalent in both nose and on the palate. Full bodied and intense berries with a distinct and unique fermented undertone that is unmistakable. The intensity was focused even further when prepared as a 20g espresso shot in my La Marzocco linea mini. Syrupy and a delightful little shot of berries!

Coffee Like No Other

Has the usual high notes and fruitiness of an Ethiopian coffee combined with the dark cherry notes of a cabernet wine. Super delicious!!

unique opportunity

I bought this roasted and loved it. I've done a couple roasts and haven't quite hit the mark but each one was delicious in its own way. If you want something different than your typical Ethiopian natural, this is your chance.

Phenomenal!

150 on a 100 scale! this coffee is incredible! It's the best anaerobic coffee I've had - and anaerobic's are my favorites... it has the anaerobic bouquet up front with whiffs of floral and fruit; the first taste is a bit of subdued toffee, light citrus, and a slight hint of dark chocolate. The finish is like a nice micro brewed IPA with Mosaic hops - light, fruity, and a slight bitterness.
