THE ETHIOSAR VARIETY
The Mierisch family see tremendous potential with this varietal in terms of cup quality, and the fact that it’s a “work horse” of a variety has led them to plant it on most of our farms. It adapts very well to most of our micro-climates. They have been working with this variety for over 10 years. More recently, it was the only variety to obtain a 90+ score in their private auction, Los Favoritos, in collaboration with Alliance for Coffee Excellence and Cup of Excellence.
