We offer Ethiopian Yirgacheffe, picked by hand on a farm in the mountains high above the town of Sidamo. There, the coffee beans are washed, and then soaked up to 72 hours in fermentation tanks. This wet process method produces intensely flavorful beans, with an intensely floral aroma, and mellow, smooth taste.
Floral aroma, smooth-bodied and sweet bright flavor with pronounced lemon notes. The profile of this coffee is unique in the world and is only found in the Sidamo region, with the most intense examples originating in Yirgacheffe.
