East Africa is the ancestral home of coffee, where it has grown wild in the hills of Ethiopia since time out of mind. Beans from this area are complex and dense, with a range of flavours from sweet berry to rich chocolate and bright citrus. Zuri is Swahili for beautiful, and this blend is a showcase of the beautiful coffees of the region – sweet, smooth, silky and perfectly balanced. When we tried Zuri as a milk coffee we found it had a well-rounded cashew flavour with a rich molasses sweetness. As an espresso the fruit came through, with berry notes and a zesty orange acidity.
