ETHIOPIA Yirgacheffe Beloya Grade 1 Washed
Coffee originates from Ethiopia and the Yirgacheffe region hasoften been said to produce the cream of the Ethiopian crop!
The Beloya Cooperative has over 1,203 members and the washing station, built in 2001, collects and processes coffee from smallholders, whose farms surround the mill.
The washing station itself has two processing units to ensure a timely washing and drying of the cherry, using water from the local river system. The coffee farmers use traditional pest control methods that have been in use for many years, and so organic production is commonly found.
Grown at high altitudes in iron rich soils with a spread of genetic diversity provided by the heirloom varietals.
Very well graded, medium roasted and clean tasting.
Floral jasmine aroma with notes of lemon, apricot and honey.
