Misty Valley is a rare example of a coffee that has managed to make a name for itself, regardless of the roaster that carries it. Part of the reason for this is that Misty Valley is a dry-process coffee coming from Yirgacheffe, a region better known for its washed offerings. More importantly, it is an exceptionally meticulous rendition of this process, avoiding many of the shortcomings experienced in other dry-processed lots. This procedure entails diligent selection of ripe cherries and constant turning of these intact cherries during the first forty-eight hours of drying before the skin or mucilage of the cherry is removed. This coffee is a fruit bomb filled with notes of blueberry, hibiscus, and vanilla.
