We loooove Ethiopian coffee. As you know, Ethiopia is the birthplace of coffee. There is more genetic diversity between coffee varieties in Ethiopia than in the rest of the world put together, and most of the coffee grown in Ethiopia is also grown at intensely high elevations.
This means the quality potential right off the bat is high. Combine this with the craftsmanship of a strong washing station like the one in Guracho town, and you have an unstoppable force.
This lot is a blend of 2,300 producers' coffee from the surrounding town of Guracho, which is in Guji. Ethiopia's various region and district names can be hard to remember. This one is in the southeast part of Ethiopia.
The variety name is misleading. In Ethiopia someone a long time ago decided to categorize varieties into "bourbon" for plants that have green tipped new leaf growth and "typica" any plant that has bronze colored new leaf growth. It has nothing to do with the actual varieties of bourbon and typica.
Instead, this is a blend of regional landraces that are indigenous and unique to the guji area. Lastly, it tastes amazing- first coffee we've had this year that I can confidently say has peach as a tasting note.
In the Cup
This coffee is Bright, Floral and Sweet. It is peachy and boasts great amounts of vanilla and bergamot. It reminds us of the London Fog drink we serve in our cafe!
