We’re excited to be able to offer you this new harvest coffee from Ethiopia!
This coffee comes to us from one of the newer cooperatives in the Agaro region of Western Ethiopia, named Kolla Bolcha. But the coffee in this region hasn’t always been of this quality, it wasn’t until about 10 years ago when the USAID’s Technoserve project invested in the region by providing new processing equipment to cooperatives, which allowed for coffees to showcase the unique characteristics of the region. What this new equipment provides, is the ability to create unique and exciting washed-process coffees, raising the flavour quality and in-turn making sure the farmers are better compensated for their work.
Using the new equipment, ripe coffee cherries are de-pulped, removing the fruit from the seed, which is then left to soak underwater in fiberglass tanks overnight. This soak works double, as a light fermentation to develop flavour, as well as to remove any leftover fruits and sugars to ensure the coffee is perfectly clean when it is transferred to dry on raised beds.
This coffee is deliciously fruity with a ton of florals, we are very excited to offer this coffee.
