From the first roast, to every roast since, this gem of a coffee is nothing but an honor to have in stock. We have had 4-5 different coffees from Yirgacheffe over the years, it's easy to say this is probably our favorite of them all.
Bursting with a medley of fruit on the aroma and first sip, cruising to a middle note of chocolate croissant finishing with a delicate and clean florality—we think you're going to be coming back for more!
A word from the importer on this particular lot:
Gersay Beyou Station is located in Gersay Kebele or Village, in the southern part of Ethiopia. It is managed by Tariku Guyo and is located 14 km from the city of Yirgacheffe. This site consists of 2 hectares, sitting at an elevation of 1,914 m.a.s.l, and is dedicated to producing both Washed and Natural coffees, where more than 1,550 farmers contribute every week, mostly with 74110 varieties.
There is no prior fermentation to this Natural, maintaining that clean, sweet profile. This process starts by purchasing the cherries from the local farmers and hand picking them once those arrive at the site. The cherries are then floated and immediately placed to dry in African beds for approximately 19 to 21 days, being moved regularly to ensure uniform drying. This might seem like a simple process, but they have been perfecting this technique year after year, achieving a pleasant and distinctive Ethiopian Natural profile
This coffee is produced by Primrose Coffee and imported by The Coffee Quest. Primrose Coffee and The Coffee Quest are dedicated to supporting the local communities through various social responsibility programs, such as schools, bridge construction projects, and providing essential school supplies to students. They both understand the importance of fostering sustainable growth and empowering the farmers who contribute to their success.
