Konga Kelloo #5
Origin: Yirgacheffe, Ethiopia
Producer: Mekuria Mergia
It's always a good day when you're brewing an excellent Ethiopian coffee - so get ready to have a good day! We're very excited to be sharing this coffee from the Konga washing station in Yirgacheffe. Owner Mekuria Mergia operates three washing stations in Ethiopia, that all produce both washed and natural coffees. This is a washed lot that was float-sorted to remove any under- and overripe cherries before pulping, washing, and drying on raised beds. The end product is a coffee that's unquestionably Yirgacheffe, with all the great flavors and character we've come to love from expert Ethiopian coffee producers.
This coffee is fragrant and rich - with a strong black tea note and some juicy peach flavors present throughout. We're also getting a more subtle chocolatey tone that offers a nice smoothness to balance out the brightness in the cup. Overall, it's a well-rounded coffee with some traits for everyone to love. We think it's a winner - and we're betting you will too when you give it a brew. Enjoy!
