Aroma

Harrar is richly aromatic, intense and sweet. Its clear, fruity notes bring to mind ripe cherries, blueberries, blood orange and cascara (the coffee cherry flesh). These are accompanied by cereals, almonds, dark chocolate and a light floral touch.

Taste

On the palate, we first get the creamy sweetness followed by a hint of sweet, ripe fruits. These are quickly substituted by rounded, dry and intense bitterness of dark cocoa and apricot kernels. The bitterness continues into the long aftertaste.
