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.
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.
