HINTS OF FRUIT, AND GREAT DEPTH IN THIS HONEY PROCESSED YIRGACHEFFE

The Koke washing station is family-owned, and located in the Gedeo zone of Yirgacheffe, Ethiopia. Red cherries are picked and sorted at the farm. The honey process begins with coffee dried in the cherries for two days before being depulped and dried on raised beds. The extra time the beans are in contact with the mucilage from the cherries adds notes of fruit and sweetness to the cup.

If you’ve never had an Ethiopian coffee, this could be a perfect place to start. It has good balance: brightness and floral tones upfront, sweet berries, hints of vanilla and black tea. Our first reaction was “blueberry muffins”, and we’ve been enjoying it ever since.
