Ethiopia Yirgacheffe Gelana Abaya
blackberry, lavender, syrup
Grown in the Yirgacheffe Region in the Gedeo Zone of Southern Ethiopia, this coffee comes from hundreds of indigenous farmers who all take their cherries to be processed by Assefa Eshete in Debo. Here, Eshete and his team, wash and depulp the cherries, let them ferment for 36 to 48 hours, and then spread them out to dry in the sun for nearly 15 days. This process leaves the beans with light floral flavors of lavender, the fruitiness of blackberrries, with a slight sweetness that will leave you wanting to come back for more.
