Origin: Yirgacheffe, Ethiopia
Producer: Kanketi Coffee
We're super excited to have some Dhilgee coffees back in the rotation - we first featured one of these lots back in 2017, and we've been remembering its delicious flavors ever since! This lot comes from the Foge washing station operated by Kanketi Coffee - and is an aggregated lot from two different small-holder communities that deliver cherry to the station for processing. Heirloom varietals grown in the Yirgacheffe region are known for their characteristically floral profile, and this lot delivers on that promise in a big way.
We're tasting a bright, lime-like acidity that gives the cup some bite ahead of a stonefruit note that reminds us of peach or apricots. The floral flavors permeate the cup but really accentuate the aftertaste and aroma of this brew. It's the kind of coffee that will leave a lasting impression, and probably spur you to brew another cup.
