    Coffee Details

    This is a brand new in 2023 wet mill set up in Gedeb Yirgacheffe on 32 acres where future plans include a modern processing facility. This wet mill collects cherries from local small-holder farmers in the region.

    As of this writing, the station was set up on a temporary basis with the basic necessitates to process exceptional coffee, but this infrastructure will be taken down once permitting and licensing is complete for the official buildings. 

    Coffees in Ethiopia are typically grown on very small plots of land by farmers who also grow other crops. The majority of smallholders will deliver their coffee in cherry to a nearby washing station or central processing unit, where their coffee will be sorted, weighed, and paid for or given a receipt. Coffee is then processed, usually washed or natural, by the washing station and dried on raised beds.

    What we're tasting...

    The bright, fruit forward acidity combined with the soft, mellow body is what makes this coffee unique. We get to keep it light and floral without becoming too cutting and sharp. The result is lots of unique tropical fruit notes along with everything we have come to love about naturally processed Ethiopian coffee. We really enjoy this coffee using high flow rate pour over brewers.
