A great and super fresh new arrival.
Ethiopia Yirgacheffe Washed Gelana Abaya is sourced from small family owned farms located in Gelana and Abaya woredas (district). These two woredas are located in the Oromia Region in Ethiopia. Ripe cherries are carefully selected and immediately placed on raised beds that are constructed to ensure proper air circulation and temperature control for an optimal drying process. Cherries are also turned regularly on the beds to prevent damage during the drying process. The cherries are stored in a local warehouse after the moisture is reduced to between 11.5 and 12 percent, and then transported to Addis Ababa where the coffee is milled and exported.
Tasting Notes: A very smooth and rich cup of coffee mainly shooting towards a chocolaty spice note with just a little floral note upfront. Low to medium acidity mostly only present at the lighter roast points, adds a little crispness until you get close to 2nd crack in which the acidity will be non-existent. A great cup to drink all day long.
Roasting Notes: A nice medium roast lets this cup shine. Smooth with just a hint of acidity. A quicker roast helps it retain the little floral upfront. Tasty lighter or darker as well.
