Origin: Yirgacheffe, Ethiopia
Producers: Haru Small-Holders
It’s always a pleasure to be enjoying a lot from our friends at Kanketi Coffee in Ethiopia. This particular bean was processed at their washing station in Haru, a village in the center of Yirgacheffe. The area is renowned for its coffee and has one of the highest densities of coffee producers anywhere in Ethiopia, which means there’s plenty of ripe coffee cherries delivered to the station during harvest. The Haru washing station uses a disc pulper to remove fruit and soaks beans for up to 78 hours before an intensive grading and sorting process. The beans are dried on traditional raised beds before heading to Addis for export. A short time later, they end up in our roaster before completing their journey in your grinder!
This lot of washed coffee is giving us a lot of the classic Yirgacheffe profile that specialty coffee fans love so much. We’re getting a tart, stonefruit note with good sweetness and acidity, some cocoa richness, and wonderful floral qualities that make the brewing aroma quite appealing. Ethiopian coffees are always a favorite around the roastery, and we hope you enjoy this one as much as we certainly will!
