Artisan Roast: CUP #9a: Ethiopia, Reko Onancho, Washed

Tasting notes: The elderflower florals are breath-taking and lead elegantly onto a compelling combination of sweet peach and bergamot like flavours. Underlying flavours of lychee, mango and concorde grape work harmoniously with a medium intensity effervescent acidity. The supporting oolong tea like mouthfeel enhances the peach-like and floral nature of the coffee

From Artisan Roast:

We are delighted to showcase coffees from the ETHIOPIA CUP programme once again. This auction incentivises smallholders by delivering higher than market prices for outstanding traceable boutique quality coffee. These coffees are a unique opportunity to see the potential in Ethiopia and the exquisite flavour profiles possible.

 

This washed process auction coffee comes from only 20 coffee farmers from Onancho who live close to the Adorsi washing station. By working with a small number of farmers it has been possible to select only Kurume, a regional landrace very popular in the Gedeo zone. Being able to experience a single cultivar from a single source in Ethiopia is a rare opportunity and if you buy this as whole bean you'll be able to see the beans are small, a characteristic of the Kurume.

The farmers, instead of processing the cherries in bulk with several hundred other farmers, processed their coffee as a micro-lot. The cool climates in the Gedeo zone allow for long fermentations over a couple of days, helping to develop the expressive nature of the coffees found here. This followed by meticulous checking of the coffee as it dried has produced a very special coffee.

The result is a transparent and floral Yirgacheffe where the uniqueness of this coffee origin can be experienced.
