Guji, Ethiopia - Light Roast Single Origin
Medium - Single Origin - Ethiopia
Peach l Floral l Juicy
This coffee is a grade 1 washed heirloom coffee from the Guji zone of Ethopia. Of all the washed coffees we have cupped this year from Guji, we feel that this one best represents this unique region. A combination of high altitude, fertile soil, consistent and plentiful rainfall contribute to the exceptional quality of Guji co fees. The indigenous ‘heirloom’ varietals which grow wild in Ethiopia are responsible for the unique flavor notes which make for an unusual but beautifully refined cup, characterized by citric acidity, sweet chocolate, and floral/herbal notes of peach, white grape, and bergamot.
THE WET PROCESS METHOD
Ripe cherries are delivered to the wet mill for careful sorting and pulping before fermentation for 36-48 hours. The wet parchment coffee is thoroughly washed and sorted by bean density before being dried in the sun on raised African beds for 12 - 15 days. Once the coffee has dried to the right level, it is transported to the dry mill in Addis Ababa, where it is bagged and exported.
