This coffee is complex, fruity and sweet.
VARIETAL: HEIRLOOM ETHIOPIA
This coffee comes from the Tome mill in the area of Uraga in Guji Zone. Tadesse, the owner of the mill has been a pioneer amongst the coffee producers of Uraga, building roads and washing stations for over twelve years. The Ethiopia Commodity Exchange (ECX) is a government organisation that has been in charge of coffee exportation with the aim of protecting the Ethiopian coffee “brand”. The goal was that farmers of all capabilities received a decent payment for their produce. During the ten years of ECX restriction, Tadesse had little choice but to deliver his lots to the regional warehouse where traceability was obscured. This year, with new regulations allowing transparency through the supply chain, Tadesse is finally able to deliver his world class coffees directly to international buyers.
This lot is processed naturally. This means the fruit is picked when ripe and then dried on raised beds, which encourage an even and slow drying period. This allows the fruity flavours to shine.
