You’ll love this blueberry bomb from Seattle’s newest roaster! We’re head over heels for this sweet, blueberry-forward Guji from our newest partner, Cloud City Coffee Roasters. Ethiopia Guji Lalisaa is a lush, natural Ethiopian, with a smooth, creamy body and notes of sweet plum, blueberry, sun dried raisin. Buoyant, honey drizzled finish. Flavors stay bright, not tart, and the purple-toned profile feels fresh and vibrant as a bright blue sky.
It’s good to be Guji when you’re from Lalisaa, an importer-driven project to create more transparency and direct trade relationships within Ethiopian coffee. Lalisaa means “flourishing”, a great name for the partnerships that help coffee communities thrive— energy that is reinvested right back into the beans themselves. Guji region is defined by its thousands of small farms, its rich culture of coffee-growing, and the fantastic, fruit-forward coffees we feel lucky to enjoy. Whenever I see coffee from Guji, the name makes me think “juicy”; and with all its ripe, blueberry flavor, this cup certainly fits the bill!
Ethiopia Guji Lalisaa is the perfect way to introduce Cloud City Coffee Roasters, our latest and greatest find. Cloud City Coffee Roasters is the roasting company of Cloud City Cafe and El Diablo Cafe, two neighborhood staples that have flourished in Seattle for over 15 years. One sip, and we fell in love with this cup of sweet, summery blueberries— we know you will too.
