Another top-quality offering from Ethiopia! This Yirgacheffe demonstrates in the cup how pleasurable a washed, sun-dried Ethiopian coffee can be. The full pedigree is Yirgacheffe Gelana Abaya. The coffee has floral, jasmine accents and hints of caramel nougat notes in the cup. One taster described them as reminiscent of candied lemon and cherry. Over 750 family owned farms organize around the Gelana Abaya Coffee Station located in the town of Doko Chere near by the town of Yirgacheffee. These small family-owned plots are located at high elevations between 5,900 and 6,500 feet in the Oromia Region of Ethiopia. Cultivating indigenous heirloom trees using organic growing practices, farmers bring the ripest cherries to the coffee station where they are sorted, pulped and placed on raised beds to dry in the sun. Wisp away to the Great Rift Valley at the base of the Mendero Mountains with each delightful sip.
