ROCKO MOUNTAIN - Olfactory Coffee Roasters

This is one of our most favaourite coffees of all times. Coming back for the second season, the Rocko Mountain cupped absolutely beautifully. We love the wonderfully well pronounced strawberry and tropical fruit sweetness complemented by a creamy mouthfeel and finished by a sour-sweet pineapple acidity. Beautiful as a filter or as an espresso.

The smallholder farmers have hand-picked their cherries and sold them to a local trader who oversees the processing and sorting before selling the beans to the ECX who grade according to SCAA standards. Addis Exporter then purchase the top quality lots from the ECX and select the best for their ‘Rocko Mountain Reserve’.

Yirgacheffe is both a town and grade of coffee in Ethiopia. The town itself is located in the Gedeo zone in the Southern Nations and Nationalities Peoples Regional State (SNNPRS) in Southern Ethiopia. More than any other country, Ethiopia has a broad genetic diversity among its coffee varieties, with each type having distinctive taste, shape and colour. As a result, each region in the country can offer a different flavour profile, forming the grading system for Ethiopian coffees e.g. Sidamo, Harrar, Limu, Djimmah etc. It is widely argued that a Yirgacheffe grade coffee can offer one of the most distinctive flavour profiles in the world with pungent floral aroma and intense citrus flavour. 

All our coffees are roasted and packed in foil-lined bags at our roastery in Penryn, Cornwall.

We roast, hand-pack and ship all orders on Thursday, including Smält Hot Chocolates, merchandise and hardware items.
