This exceptional coffee was selected as the No. 24 coffee on Coffee Review’s list of the Top 30 Coffees of 2019 and has been reviewed at 95 points.. Produced by the Lamastus family Elida Estate, entirely of the Catuai variety of Arabica, and processed by the natural method, meaning the beans were dried inside the fruit rather than after the fruit has been removed, as is the case with wet-processed or “washed” coffees. The Lamastus estate is the same farm that gave us the latest price-record-breaking, most sought-after Geisha in the world. Consider this coffee a worthy and affordable cousin.
The Elida Natural is an explosively sweet, fruit-forward natural-processed coffee, Starting with a flavor of blueberry, it has fig and maple notes with chocolate throughout, full-bodied with a smooth finish.

One reviewer describes this coffee as, "Richly and cleanly fruit-toned, chocolaty. Dried fig, chocolate fudge, molasses, oak, narcissus-like flowers in aroma and cup. Deeply sweet-tart in structure with high-toned, crisp acidity; full, creamy mouthfeel. The resonant flavor-saturated finish centers around fig and chocolate suggestions."
