Variety: Ethiopian Heirloom
Origin: Guji, Ethiopia
Producers: Hawata Washing Station
Layo Teraga is a cooperative located in northern Guji, Uraga. The cooperative has about 500 members, all of whom have small personal coffee gardens around their homes. The coffee is mainly grown in semi-forested environments, using natural vegetation for shade cover. Coffees being delivered to this washing station are among the highest grown in Ethiopia, with peaks upwards of 2,300 meters above sea level. The Union considers Layo Teraga to be one of its prized washing stations and has invested in process-level upgrades, including tile for fermentation tanks, a new McKinnon depulper, and a new and improved shed for storage.
The resulting coffee produces an outstanding cup. We are tasting jasmine-tinged florals, with honey and the fruitiness of ripe peaches. Let’s brew!

Sometimes you get a coffee that smells fantastic after you grind it, but then fails to match the same intensity when you taste it. This coffee smells just as good as it tastes and will not disappoint you in any way.

To be fair, I love tea so this does not bother me too much. The peach notes are strong and give the coffee a fruity taste. Very interesting!

I'm not sure that I'd describe this Ethiopian as 'tea-like', but while it doesn't have the pronounced 'perfume' of other Ethiopian coffees, the jasmine note is right there up front and it has a smooth and round finish. Very nice!
