We are so excited to have our first washed Ethiopian coffee after a long while!
It's an amazingly sweet, elegant coffee that we can enjoy everyday. It's one of those coffees that make us fall in love with specialty coffee all over again, that even the most adamant bitter coffee drinker would be impressed by it
We love how clean, sweet, and floral it is. Right out of the bag, it's smells almost like elderflower and a sweet blueberry pie right out of the oven
About the Coffee
This coffee was picked by smallholder farms and processed as a mixed lot at Mesina in Adola, Mesina.
At least once a day, the collected coffee cherry is delivered to the mill, where it is floated, pulped and then delivered to a fermentation tank, where it ferments for 66 to 72 hours depending on the climate at the time. Fermentation times are quite long here due to the altitude, which makes for cooler climates. After fermentation the coffee is fully washed through grading channels and is then delivered to dry on African beds or, on occasion, patios. Once here, the parchment is turned regularly and protected from hot sun between 12:00 and 15:00 every day until it reaches the optimal humidity, at which point it is bagged and rested
