Ethiopia Gedeo Double Washed Notes: Rose petal, peach, lychee, honeycomb Process: Double washed This exceptional offering comes from the Gedeo Zone at the Adame Gorbota Cooperative. The flavor profile is incredibly complex with notes of Rose petal, peach, honeycomb sweetness, and hints of lychee and white tea. This is a very clean up with a silky mouth feel and a mild white wine acidity. AND Ethiopia Yirgacheffe Double Washed Notes: Jasmine, cashew, butterscotch, lemongrass Process: Double washed This delicate and exquisite offering also comes from the Gedeo Zone at the Dumerso Washing Station. This Ethiopia has everything you’d expect out of a Yirgacheffe. The flavor profile is intricate and refined. Strong notes of jasmine, honeysuckle, and sweet butterscotch stun the pallet, while subtle hints of cashew, lemongrass, and florals give to a velvety mouthfeel. This blast of flavor is punctuated by a lemon and orange acidity. About the Farms: Ethiopia Gedeo Double Washed: Desta Gola cultivated this single farmer lot on his 10-acre farm near the town of Gorbota located in the heart of the coveted Gedeo grow Zone. Desta has been cultivating coffee since 2013 and with the help of the single lot program he has been able to sell his coffee as a micro-lot in recent years. Coffee is Desta’s main source of income to support his wife and their nine children (6 girls and 3 boys). Ripe cherries for this washed processed coffee were taken to the Adame Garbota Cooperative where Desta is a member. At the cooperative the cherries are carefully hand sorted and floated to remove less dense coffee beans, then depulped, fermented for 48 hours, and washed and classified again in channels. The parchment is placed on raised beds where it is hand sorted again and dried over a period of 12 to 15 days. The parchment is often covered during the afternoons to prevent harsh drying in the intense sun. When the coffee reaches 11 percent moisture content, it is transported to Addis Ababa, the capital of Ethiopia, to be milled and prepared for export. Ethiopia Yirgacheffe Double Washed: Dumerso is a private washing station located just north of the town of Yirga Chefe (known the world over as Yirgacheffe), in the heart of the Gedeo Zone. As a coffee terrior, Yirgacheffe has for decades been considered a benchmark for beauty and complexity in arabica coffee. The Dumerso mill is owned by Hirut Berhanu, a woman with years of experience in coffee processing and logistics, including 5 years with the Ethiopian Commodity Exchange (ECX), where she was a member and gained experience in Ethiopia’s grading and export marketplace. Hirut originally acquired the Dumerso station in 2010. Dumerso was originally established in 1998, but it had never been fully operational. Within three years Hirut had the station completely transformed, and 2013 was the first year Dumerso opened for business. The station now employs over 400 individuals during harvest season, 95% of whom are women, as well as a site manager and quality specialist, Abenet Alemu, who is responsible for maintaining the cup quality the area is famous for. Abenet was born and raised in Yirgacheffe, so his knowledge of local coffee systems and traditions is deep. As a result, in addition to his task of optimizing local quality through processing, he has a critical role to play in community relations on behalf of the station. Our Studio Series designation is for unique coffees that offer cleanliness and complexities which far exceed expectations.
