Single Origin Offerings
Single origin coffees can be amazing and can really showcase the breadth and depth of flavors possible depending on growing region, processing method, roasting technique, and a million other variables. We love single origin coffees and will feature some outstanding examples throughout the year. However, in order to ensure we are using only the best beans, each will be available for a limited time. Check back often to see what’s roasting and mark your calendars if you have a favorite or see something that piques your interest!

Cup Qualities: Juicy
Flavors: Blueberry, nougat
The natural process Illubabor Dabi is a very unique coffee and the first dry process coffee we have brought in as a single origin offering. Though it has some earthy base notes, it showcases the fruity character that the natural process elicits. The reason for this is the beans are dried with the cherry remaining on the bean and then the fruit is pulped off, unlike washed coffees (probably what you are used to) where the fruit is removed before washing and drying the beans.
At City+ the brewed coffee yields big berry notes that are perhaps a bit muddled at this stage, but are somewhere in the blackberry/blueberry flavor matrix. The cooling coffee has much in the way of cooked fruit intimations, berry being the most obvious, but others to note include cantaloupe, musky chermioya, and canned plums. It isn’t a pure fruit bomb like some other natural processes I’ve had, but I think that’s what lends it a little more body, smoothness, and depth that make it a beautiful brewed coffee, but also a wild single origin espresso option.
If you’ve never had a natural process coffee, I think it’s worth a try just to experience the other side of the processing spectrum.

Cup Qualities: Crisp
Flavors: Honey, Walnut
Honey process coffees seem to be on the rise lately. Not actually involving honey, this processing method is achieved by leaving varying amounts of the coffee fruit on the beans and letting it dry for varying amounts of time to achieve anything from almost natural process fruitiness to a hint of sweetness on a bright, clean cup. This coffee is definitely on the latter end. It has a prominent honeyed sweetness with a very pleasant walnut characteristic adding just a little bite (i.e. tannin and acidity) to excite the palate. Expect a balanced and clean-drinking coffee with this one. If you are a fan of single origin coffees, this is a must try as it really shows off how the interplay of different flavors can create the perfect cup of coffee.
