Ethiopia has always been a difficult region for traceability as there are just so many inputs and factors that go into the creation of a singular lot of ‘Grade 1’ Ethiopian. Most of the time you may see term such as ‘Heirloom varietal’ and ‘various smallholders’ which is an accurate representation of the genetic diversity and sheer number of multiple producers that bring their cherry to the centrally located washing stations. As with all Ethiopia, this lot has been built from the hard work of multiple small holder farmers in the vicinity of the Nensebo washing station. It is within the coveted Southern Oromia region where almost all the legendary Ethiopian coffees are found. Fresh crop couldn’t come at a better time, and we are happy to see a return to the vibrancy of winey fruit that all naturally processed Ethiopian coffees are so well known for. The abundance of Ethiopian coffee around this time of the year makes it a truly great time for roasters, and as always we select the lots which have the cleanest and most vibrant flavours.
