Definitely one of the most exciting coffees we've featured in the shop thus far. This particular coffee cultivar, Sidra, started appearing in coffee competitions a few years back and is now making its way onto some specialty roasters offer sheets. So when we saw this on Harken's new menu it was a no brainer!
Sidra is a hybrid of Typica and Red Bourbon. Typica is one of the oldest Arabica strains. Known for its vibrant, acid forward cups , Typica's lineage traces all the way back to Ethiopian coffee forests . Red bourbon is cherished for it's sweet, round bodied cups. All these qualities coming together in one cup, the profile is very similar to a Gesha varietal - very sweet acidity, incredible structure and clean floral notes. Best described by the folks at Harken:
"One sip. That's all it took us to decide had to have this coffee. It happens every once in a while, where a light goes off in your head, your knees buckle a bit and you just can't help but smile and taste the coffee over and over and over."
