Why You'll love it:
This rare Ethiopian micro-lot reaches new heights of intense fruit flavor. The coffee is dried for over two weeks in its cherry, creating an intoxicatingly juicy coffee experience.
Story of the Bean:
The Egu Abaye mill in Guji collects the coffee cherries from hundreds of local family-based producers for sorting, drying, and milling. The mill workers first sort for cherries at the peak of ripeness. These bright red cherries are then evenly spread on screens to dry in the sun. After drying, the fruit is stripped away revealing this singular coffee that's taken months of careful cultivation and processing. This coffee, the product of a community grounded in hundreds of years of farming tradition and skilled in modern processing techniques, exhibits some of the most vivid flavors possible in coffee.

Changed my perception of coffee!
This coffee completely changed my perception of coffee! The flavors were so clear that I emailed La Colombe to ask if any flavoring had been added. It was delicious and if coffee can taste like this- I'm in! Thank you!
Great light roast
This light roasted bean is really good. It's vibrant and the blueberry note is most abundant. No sugar needed to enjoy this sweet bean. This could be an everyday coffee for me, and is now in my top three single origin beans offered by LaColombe. I hope it will remain available, and that there will be enough demand to keep this farm going.
