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 coffee experience!
This was delicious. For the first time that I've ever tasted a coffee I could actually pick up the tasting notes clearly. It drinks more like a tea. Even my wife drank it black and was astonished!
