Coffea Roasterie’s Ethiopia Nekisse earns high score

August 13th, 2010 | by addis portal |

Coffee Review, an international guide to specialty coffee, recently gave Coffea Roasterie’s Ethiopia Nekisse a top review.
The medium roast coffee received a score of 96 out of 100 points from Kenneth Davids, co-founder of Coffee Review.

The score is the highest of the year so far, according to Coffea co-owner Jenna Aukerman. Co-owner Jon Brudvig roasted the Nekisse.

“He used a certain roast profile to let the Ethiopia shine,” Aukerman said.

Coffea, 2318 S. Louise Ave., submitted its roasted version of the Nekisse bean. Ethiopia Nekisse is grown in the Sidamo region of southern Ethiopia.

“For those willing to spend nearly $40 for 12 ounces of coffee, (Nekisse is) an opportunity to experience an almost perfect example of the tricky-to-produce dried-in-the-fruit type, grand but seductive,” Davids wrote in the August review.

Ethiopian Nekisse is $37.95 for a 12-ounce bag, $8.50 for a French press – which makes two 12-ounce cups – and $5 for a double shot of espresso at Coffea.
