Ethiopia H3 organic is a blend of three varieties native to Ethiopia's Wallaga area, winner of Best Espresso Blend in France in 2015. Two natural coffees for body and typicity, a washed coffee to yield fruitiness and finesse. In the nose, an intense and thick crema exhales notes of cocoa and frangipane. The attack is supple, the body extremely velvety. The spicy typicity of semi-wild mokas tightened by fine acidity offers intoxicating gourmandise. Long in the mouth, very persistent and gourmet. A highly esteemed espresso, classic and sophisticated.

What is a score?
Our product range is categorised by score: 80+, 85+, 88+ We have the "Specialty Coffee Association of America" to thank for the system of "scores", who defined a very strict ratings protocol to evaluate the quality of speciality coffee. This ratings system enables players within the sector, as well as coffee lovers, to share a common language. Within this tasting protocol, the main criteria for the evaluation of a coffee are noted: odour, aroma, after-taste, acidity, body, harmony, purity...
The final score classifies the coffee within a hierarchy unique to speciality coffee. The coffee must achieve a score of at least 80/100 to be considered a speciality coffee.
A detailed look at the scores attributed to speciality coffee:
- - Score 80+ = very good coffee
- - Score 85+ = exceptional coffee
- - Score 88+ = grand cru* (great vintage)
Our blends, being mixtures of multiple coffees, are excluded from the rating system, although they are all comprised of speciality coffees.
*The SCAA classifies 90+ coffees as "Outstanding". We consider an 88+ coffee to reflect a quality that is already outstanding, already representing the excellence of the sector. In this regard, it is a Grand Cru.
Heirloom3 was born from the idea of creating a terroir blend made up of native coffee varieties, also by the name of Heirloom. Wallaga's terroir has emerged as an obvious source of ingredients for this blend. Two natural coffees for the mouthfeel, gourmandise and typicity, a coffee washed for purity and intensity. 1+1+1 = Heirloom 3.
