Dumerso is a washing station in close proximity to Yirga Cheffe town. Coffee from small-holder farmers is delivered directly to Dumerso, as well as collected from buying stations located at key points in the area. The Dumerso mill is owned by a local family who live in town, and they have been focusing more effort (and space on their extensive drying beds) to natural coffees rather than their wet-processed lots. They produce quite a volume of coffee, and we were really happy with this particular lot of natural when we cupped against other naturals from the region. The fruit had a wild edge to it, that was sure to settle down with rest, and it did. It's a heavyweight, both in terms of body, but also in sheer intensity of flavor. It also has a lower perceived acidity than our other DP lots, adding to the perception of extraordinarily thick mouthfeel.
Description from Coffee Shrub.
This is a great fruitful roast. Being a dry process bean the flavor has not been washed away on it and the roasting is nearly perfect. Iâ€™ll be legitimately sad when this goes out of stock.
