Day 17 - Coffee Advent Calendar 2022

Discover the sweetness of Ethiopia

For day 17 of your coffee Advent calendar, we present Toto from Ambros Coffee Roasters in Montreal. A natural Ethiopian from the famous coffee growing region of Sheka in southwestern Ethiopia. This coffee was prepared by the champion barista of the French Brewers, Pierre le Chanterac. After the harvest, the cherries were fermented in vats for a day, then placed on African beds and dried with the typical natural process.

In your cup, this natural Ethiopian profile offers you a fruity sweetness and sugar of apricots and pears, with a floral undertone and a very clean finish. Ideal as a filter, but also for an adventurous espresso.
