Chelbesa # 6
Variety: Dega, Wolisho
Origin: Gedeb, Ethiopia
Producers: Negusse Debela Washing Station
Worka Chelbesa is one of the finest coffee producing areas within the Gedeb Woreda. Known for its dense layered semi-forest vegetation structures of banana trees and shade grown coffee trees. Chelbesa is a great example of the best in coffee growing agroecology. Negusse Debela began investing in coffee washing stations in 2017 and exporting coffee through his company, SNAP. The company runs three coffee washing and processing stations and partners with three other stations in the region. SNAP recently invested in fermentation tanks at Chelbesa station. The fermentation tanks of the wet mill were built of ceramic which will help bring clarity in the coffee that they process as well as help fasten the fermentation through keeping heat inside.
We are tasting a well structured coffee with complex flavors–lightly fermented plums with the sweetness of concord grapes and shot through with floral notes. Cheers!
