Ethiopia Fair Trade $15 /lb.

Another top-quality offering from Ethiopia! This Yirgacheffe demonstrates in the cup how enjoyable a washed, sun-dried Ethiopian coffee can be. The full pedigree is Yirgacheffe Banko Dhadhato Lot 2. The coffee in the cup is deep and round, producing a balanced brew accented by hints of floral and caramel notes.

“Banko” means something akin to “high place” in the local Gedeo language, the name is a reference to a high ridge which bisects the area. This delivery exemplifies all that we love in Yirgacheffe: juicy peach and lemon predominate along with verbena and bergamot.

One hundred seventy seven family owned farms are organized under the Banko Dhadhato Cooperative. Their small family-owned plots are located at high elevations between 5,700 and 7,500 feet. Cultivating indigenous heirloom trees using organic growing practices, their efforts have enabled the cooperative Fair Trade certifications. Fair Trade certification ensures medical and educational services to the members and sustainable growing methods for the environment.
