Ethiopia - Yirgachefe Gedeb Chelbesa Washed
Flavor descriptors: Black Tea, coriander seed, floral, guava, lavender, pomegranate, star fruit.
This is one of five lots we purchased this year from Heleanna Georgalis, of Moplaco Trading PLC. The coffees we source from Moplaco fall under one of several categories. Moplaco has a long history of exporting coffee from diverse and remote regions of Ethiopia such as Harar, Idido, and Chire, and has developed a range of consistent and impactful profile coffees such as Abyssinian Mocca. They are also vertically integrated, currently operating washing stations and farms in Kochere Yirgachefe, Segera Bensa, Chelbesa Gedeb, and Sheka Illubabor. We love working with coffees that Moplaco is directly involved with the production of, but when Heleanna presents us with an offering outside of the Moplaco network it is usually because the quality is phenomenal.
This coffee comes from the Moplaco new washing station in Chelbesa Gedeb and we're super stoked on this project of hers because we know she has been working at it for a long time. Also, we've been big fans of coffees from this region and carried them for the past several years. This coffee is truly one of the best, highlighting the tropical fruits, floral and black tea notes we love so much!
