Laayyoo is back for the third year in a row! We are thrilled to share this lovely, clean natural again. This harvest is really shining and is a total flavor bomb. The cup is incredibly floral in a deeply compressed way along with fruited flavors of seeded raspberry and blackberry jam. It's a very candy-like coffee and we cant get away from the flavor of smarties!


We don't buy many naturals, and are pretty picky when we do. Ture Waji of Sookoo Coffee, who produced this lot has changed our perception on what naturals can be. Ture is able to produce flavorful, complex, and deeply sweet naturals while maintaining a level of cleanliness that we find is lacking in so many we taste. 

Laayyoo is produced at the Raro Nensebo washing station in Uraga, Guji. The farmers who deliver their cherries to make up this lot come from the village Teraga and their farms sit at an elevation of 2,100 to 2,350 MASL. This lot is primarily composed of the 74110 and 74112 varieties  

Laayyoo refers to an indigenous tree growing in this area that provides shade to the coffee plantations.
