Noble Coffee Roasting – Ethiopian Bishan Fugu Coffee Review (2018)
And it definitely lived up to the hype.
This is a very clean, fruity, and floral naturally processed coffee from the Guji Zone of Ethiopia. Roasted to a light brown color, this coffee is exceptional when brewed as pour over. I was especially a fan of the Bishan Fugu when I brewed it through my Chemex.

Drip Coffee Experience
My favorite of the 3 brewers was the Chemex, which made the brewed coffee taste exceptionally clean and sweet, with good complexity in flavor. Floral and berry notes dominated, and my first cup was drunk up in record time.
Both cups of the coffee were simpler than the coffee that I brewed up with the Chemex, but they were all delicious despite more limited complexity.
The Bishan Fugu definitely lived up to the hype, folks. This is a super clean coffee with a lot of complexity between brew methods.
To me, this coffee is yet another argument that Ethiopian naturally processed coffees are some of the best in the world, hands-down.
Even so, a coffee like this won't be suitable for every type of coffee drinker. It is definitely on the lighter side in terms of its overall flavor profile, so if you're looking for something with heavy body and grit this coffee will not be for you.
If you love doing pour-overs, you'll likely love this one.
