About the Producer
This coffee comes from a washing station called Gelana Abaya, which is in the kebele, or village, of Asgori in the woreda, or district, of Abaya, in the Yirgacheffe region.
Aside from its near-legendary status as the “birthplace” of Arabica coffee, there is much to love about Ethiopia as a producing nation, including but not limited to the incredible diversity of flavor and character that exists among microregions, specifically within the southwestern Gedeo Zone of Yirgacheffe within the region of Sidama—areas whose names alone conjure thoughts of the finest coffees in the world.
This lot is processed in the ancient method of simply drying the fruit for around 4-6 weeks on raised beds, and then removing the coffee seeds for export. However, many of the top-quality washing stations in Ethiopia practice this ancient method with a bit of a modern, quality focused twist. They separate the ripe cherries and dry them as a top grade of coffee. The cherries are meticulously sorted, and then when the seeds are finally exposed, they also go through a rigorous sorting process. This illuminates and isolates the top quality coffee from the top quality places so that we can provide that level of “special” to your customers.
I know that our flavor list looks exotic and almost conjured from grocery store’s jelly and jam section, but we assure you, with the expert hand and coaxing of an attentive roaster, these flavors flourish in the cup.
