This washed coffee from Ethiopia is of the Heirloom varietal and is grown by a collection of small-hold farmers high up in the Yirgacheffe region.
This is classic washed Ethiopian, delicate in body but sweet and delicious. It’s got a honey-like quality when it’s warm with notes of dried apricot, butter biscuits and pink florals. Think of a delicate hibiscus tea and you’ve got it. This Yirgacheffe is tea-like in texture that just flows over your palate like a gentle comforting hug.
