Merge Coffee Company’s Ethiopia Gera Estate Natural Lightly roasted coffee beans with an Agtron number 81 have less oil on the surface and a lighter color than medium or dark roasts. The taste is often described as bright and crisp, with a mellow body.
Natural processing also called the dry method is the method involved in Merge Coffee Company’s Ethiopia Gera Estate Natural manufacturing process. It is one of the oldest methods of processing coffee. They are spread out thinly on the trees to dry after they are picked from the coffee trees. Different farms or regions may utilize a variety of drying stations, some using brick patios, others specially designed raised beds as they enable air to circulate around the cherries. In order to prevent microorganisms from growing on the cherries, they are turned regularly. Once the cherries are completely dried out, the skin and dried fruit flesh are removed mechanically from the coffee before it is exported.
Ethiopia Gera Estate Natural is a well-established brand when it comes to coffee. Their operations are based in Harrisonburg, Virginia but they source their coffee beans from Agaro Gera, Jimma Zone, Oromia Region, Ethiopia to produce Ethiopia Gera Estate Natural.
