Coffee Review: New Harvest Sidamo Heirloom Medium Roast

New Harvest

When I received this coffee in my Craft Coffee subscription I was really excited. The coffee is naturally processed instead of washed, and naturally processed coffees tend to have more fruit-like flavours with a fuller body. I’ve brewed this coffee with several methods. Unfortunately, this coffee doesn’t work well for espressos and doesn’t hold up very well to milk. It’s possible to get a comforting, but ordinary and uninspiring cup of latte. However, when brewed with the French Press and it yields a very interesting, delicate and rather delicious cup of coffee (although I have difficulty detecting the fruity flavous mentioned in the tasting note). You may use Craft Coffee’s French Press brew guide as a reference.
