In New Products, Product Reviews on June 26, 2010 at 4:19 pm

Our newest coffee addition at Speakeasy Roasteries  is the Ethiopian Amaro Gayo. We will be offereing the Amaro Gayo in both Washed / Sun-dried or Natural / Sun-dried process options.


A thick bodied coffee, with predominant notes of chocolate, dried banana & blackberry. This clean and consistent cup has a sweet rich chocolate aftertaste and finish.
Asnakech Thomas is the only female coffee producer and exporter in Ethiopia. Asnakech is the head of Amaro Gayo Mill in the Amaro region in Ethiopia within the boundaries of the Nechisar National Park. She inspects her drying tables and leads with a fervor never before seen in southern Ethiopia. She pays great prices for the ripest of cherry from surrounding smallholders and employs the best techniques in selecting and drying her coffee cherry.
