Light in body but super-rich and smooth, this microlot is from a woman-owned farm that has distinguished itself in local presentations and earned the farmer the right to sell direct outside of her co-op. Notes of dark chocolate, caramel, berry, roasted almond, and rose bring a cascade of aromas and nuances to your palate.
This single farm lot comes from producer Tsigue Jigso Oda, a female producer in the Kochere District of the Gedeo Zone. Freshly picked red cherries were slowly sundried on raised beds for two weeks. To avoid the intense heat from the sun, the coffee was covered during parts of the day. The coffee was hulled in Chelelektu and dry milled for export in Addis Ababa. We are running this (fairly expensive to buy on direct trade) coffee on intro sale because we love the story and the coffee and hope that our customers will enjoy it too!
8 ounces, please choose ground coffee or whole bean. Roast level is City & Full City Harlequin, equal parts, to broaden the sweet spot of this coffee's best nuances.

The Araku Valley of India
India's coffee tradition goes back 400 years or more, when a variety called Kent was first established in the Southern Hills. Arabicas predominated until the blight of 1870, when growers needed to hybridize to resistant varieties. The resultant strains had genes from Liberica and other unique, resistant species.
