The Ethiopian Harrar Queen City brand has been developed in partnership with our supplier of Harrar coffees, Mr. Abdirashid Abdullahi, the nephew of Mohamed Abdullah Ogsadey of the famed MAO Horse brand. The Queen City lots are set apart from other Harrar coffees due to the intensive sorting and defect screening that occurs as part of the initial collection of coffee. Most exporters selling Grade 4 Harrar will purchase a blend of high- and low-quality coffees from both East and West Harrar and perform a minimal cleaning and sorting to remove foreign matter like rocks and sticks. Queen City Harrar is formed from top lots at the ECX auction, which are then sorted again to ensure a preparation standard superior to other Harrar offerings.
