<p>One of our favorite times of year is when a new round of Ethiopian coffees arrive, and the Ethiopians coming in from our friends at Nordic Approach are some of the most vibrant in recent memory. Ethiopia is widely regarded as the birthplace of coffee and the dedication to quality among producers in Ethiopia's many growing regions is second-to-none. This particular lot was grown and milled in the Boji area, which is a Gedefa word for "cold weather." Cooler temperatures give coffee beans more time to develop strong flavors, so a place named after cold weather is also a great place for excellent coffee. Mill owner Israel Degfa recently invested in float tanks to sort out any coffee cherries with defects before the washing process begins, making Kelloo #4 one of the tastiest, most consistent lots of coffee ever to come out of the Boji washing station.</p>
<p>The flavors that you'll find in a cup of Boji Kelloo #4 are a great representation of what's made Ethiopian coffee so renowned throughout the world. Vibrant stonefruit notes of peach and plum give the cup a touch of tartness and acidity, while a golden honey flavor contributes sweetness and smoothness to the brew. Aromatics of black tea give Boji Kelloo #4 a light and clean aftertaste that lingers just long enough, making it a perfect way to start your day. If you're as excited as we are about the new Ethiopian coffees we have coming in, be sure to add some coffees to your queue and let us know what you're digging. </p>

Mature and Sweet

This is my first coffee from MCC and I am impressed. I buy Ethiopian coffee from my local roaster and this coffee contends with his. I definitely noticed the stone fruit taste and loved the mouthfeel and smooth finish. Works well in my espresso machine and I look forward to trying it in the Aeropress.

tad too sweet

I'm definitely getting spoiled by this website. I acknowledge that it's a high quality coffee, but this coffee is a tad too smooth and too fruit for me. They nailed the flavor notes for sure. Truly does taste like black tea with honey. Might try it as an iced coffee now that I think about it. Might make a 5/5 iced coffee.

Good, but not really my style.

It's a pleasant enough cup, but I tend not to love coffee with "black tea notes".

Love the fruity notes

I have tried this on Aeropress and it is already one of my favorite coffees from the MCC. I am generally a fan of African beans, and always opt for Ethiopian coffee when it is available. The notes of plum really stood out to me. Definitely a must for any fans of fruit-forward roasts!

Fruity burst

I love the fruity undertones of good African coffees, and Boji Kelloo #4 boasts a unique mango-like burst. Excellent, smooth mouthfeel when brewed in a French Press.

One of my favorites so far

I don’t know if I’m drinking a cup of coffee or English black tea with hints of sweet blueberry. I’m almost certain I brewed a cup of coffee, but with such strong, smooth and clean flavors it’s hard to tell. Bravo

Boji Kellogg’s #4

This coffee is extremely smooth with a simple, sweet finish. It works exceptionally well with milk. It has very low acidity which allows me to drink more of it. I’m enjoying it much more than my previous shipment of Mokonisa Bulga.

Boji Kelloo #4

I didn't find this coffee to be as exceptional as others, more like an average cup. Although I noticed the black tea taste, and its smoothness, it didn't impress me like some other offerings.

Really good.

It's actually wonderful, but Moustache has ruined me for merely excellent coffee. Now it has to be "interesting" and "different". I used to drink starbucks all the time. What have I become?

Best of my life

Everything that came before shouldn’t have counted as coffee.
