Naga Singage (Washed) Yirgachefe-Ethiopia
Flavor Descriptors: Jasmine, Apple Pie, Peach Tea
The 'Naga Singage' coffee is harvested by Gersi smallholders that have a clear view of the Naga Singage mountain. The mountain is a place where reconciliation ceremonies, called “Songo”, are performed.
The Gersi smallholders collect cherries and deliver these to the Aricha washing station, found in the neighboring kebele, Aricha.
The Yirgacheffe coffee taste enjoys world-wide recognition. And the Aricha coffees are no exception. The bright citric acidity, floral brilliance, and chocolate/peachy undertones only start to describe what Aricha brings to the table.
Within the Aricha kebele, we often see these varieties pop up: Wolisho, Kurume, and Dega. And then there’s a pile of unidentifiable local landrace varieties which add to the mystery of the Yirgacheffe coffee taste.
