Although grown in the district of Gedeb on a narrow section of plateau in the south-eastern corner of Ethiopia's Gedeo Zone, this coffee is known as “Yirgacheffe” after the area's most famous district. Gedeb, dense with savvy farmers is however, a terroir, history, and community all its own that merits unique designation. Coffees from this community often have the most explosive cup profiles. Naturals tend to have perfume-like volatiles, and fully washed lots are often sparklingly clean and fruit candy-like.
This particular coffee was processed at the Halo Bariti washing station operated by the Boledu family who purchase directly from over 1200 individual farmers making the station a strong part of the local community. Naturals are received directly from the farms, sorted for consistency and quality, and then taken directly to raised beds to dry for 2-3 weeks during which they are constantly rotated and covered each evening.
Cup Profile: Cherry, blackberry, jammy, smooth - medium roast
