Rarity No. 4/2021 from Tchibo in the taste test: Hambela Wamena from Ethiopia



fourth rarity this year bears the name Hambela Wamena and comes from the region of the same name in Ethiopia. The coffee (variety: Heirloom) is grown at an altitude of between 2,140 and 2,480 meters and later hand-picked, washed and sun-dried.

For transparency: The manufacturer provided me with a pack of this coffee for my test. I did not receive the variant with Cafissimo capsules, which is also available. All statements about the taste in this test are therefore limited to the product available in the form of whole beans.

What does the supplier say about the coffee?

Tchibo describes the taste of Rarity No. 4/2021 as floral with associations of jasmine blossoms as well as hints of vanilla, maple syrup and lavender. The manufacturer emphasizes that this is the first time since the introduction of the aroma wheel that a coffee falls into the floral spectrum.

On Tchibo’s in-house intensity scale, the Hambela Wamena scores 5 out of 6 beans. In acidity, it’s 3 out of 6 beans, in body, 4 out of 6 beans, and in roastiness, 2 out of 6 beans.

Our taste test

From the opened package, it smells sugary-sweet and fruity. Yes, the classification suggested by Tchibo as a syrup fits, but at least when I sniff it, I classify it between apricot and orange. In addition, it seems slightly chocolaty.

Brewed, I notice a floral scent, but it does not remind me of jasmine. Instead, it continues to smell sweetly of fruit, somewhere between apricot and orange.

When I sniff the coffee from the stamp pot, the sniffing impression becomes even more varied: I notice an unusual scent that is floral and fruity and spicy at the same time. Hambela Wamena has a truly unique aroma profile.

As a lungo from a fully automatic machine, the Hambela Wamena seems very light, somewhat thin, but quite pleasant, but distinctly spicy and a bit sharp, not bitter. Its fruity notes appear as faint as I had not expected.

With a little time, subtle sweet notes can be detected. As a lungo, Rarity No. 4/2021 seems round overall, but not intense enough for my taste. Some consumers will like exactly that.

Since I use the simple fully automatic Esperto Caffè (also from Tchibo) presented here earlier for this test, I can increase the intensity of the coffee via the Plus button. Often this does not make a significant difference, but here it does. This is how I like the lungo, because the non-acidic but very fruity and tart notes seem intense and quite well balanced.

With the lungo from the fully automatic machine, I can confirm neither jasmine blossom, nor vanilla, maple syrup or lavender as taste impressions for sure. Jasmine blossom is the closest match.

As an Americano, the Hambela Wamena can not really convince me, it seems a bit too pale.

When prepared with an electric filter coffee machine, I notice moderate fruity distress.

The coffee has a strong taste, but it is stronger than expected. If you use a little more coffee grounds than normally needed for preparation with the classic filter coffee machine, the Hambela Wamena has an intense flavor. The fruity notes at the beginning are almost immediately complemented by tart notes that quickly become stronger. A subtle spiciness with a faint smoky note can be tasted in the aftertaste.

The filter coffee does not appear floral. Compared to the Americano from the fully automatic coffee maker, I like the coffee from the electric filter coffee maker better, but it cannot keep up with the Lungo. It seems less versatile and less nuanced. This is even more true when compared to the result I get when preparing it using a stamp pot.

From the stamp pot, this coffee comes across as soft and fruity, but not sour. The tart and floral notes go very well with the soft-sweet impressions.

Early on, a rough sensation is noticeable at the front of the tongue. In the aftertaste, chocolaty notes emerge at first, followed by spicy notes that become stronger with time. The Hambela Wamena offers a particularly varied mix of different impressions. When prepared with the stamp pot, these different flavor impressions are in a good balance.

Price in test period

For a pound of whole beans of the Hamebla Wamena, the roaster charges 13.98 euros. For the “Grand Classé Espresso” edition coffee capsules not tested here, the price is 3.99 euros per stick of 10.

The packaging of Tchibo’s Rarity No. 4/2021 bears the Rainforest Alliance seal.

Despite the increased world market prices for coffee, I am somewhat surprised that the new rarity is offered at the same price as the previous rarity, Amabala Yasuma Zambia. Compared to coffee from Zambia, coffee from Ethiopia is not so rarely offered.

In contrast to the previous rarity, Tchibo’s rarity No. 4/2021 fully convinced me again in terms of taste – at least as far as preparation as a lungo from a fully automatic machine as well as by means of a stamp pot is
