Artisan Roast - Konga Ethiopia - Washed Cupping Chart

Getting product details...

Heady perfumed aromas of jasmine are transformed into sweet apricot and peach in the cup followed by a refined, delicate, oolong tea mouthfeel.

From Artisan Roast:

Just south of Yirga Chefe town lies the Konga zone, famous for producing some of the the very best coffees in the region. This washed coffee is a sweet, juicy peach like grade one coffee that represents the very best of the region, and is made up of coffees from a handful of washing stations in Konga. It came to Artisan Roast via the ECX platform (the Ethiopian Commodities Exchange) an auction system that handles over 80% of all Ethiopian coffee.

As with the traditional processing route small holders families supply ripe red cherry from their coffee trees to the local washing station for pulping and processing. The mill then pulps, ferments, channels and soaks coffee over a period of three days before drying it on raised beds for two to three weeks. This traditional processing serves the coffee very well and Yirga Chefe coffee has a tendency to keep its unique characteristics much longer than many other producing regions across the worlds.

This coffee from Konga is a classic grade 1 Yirgacheffe - phenomenally clean in the cup allowing the intense perfumed jasmine aroma, along with stone fruit flavours of apricot and peach to shine. This particular coffee has a full juicy sweetness that balances the complex citrus and red grape like acids while accentuating the apricot like flavour very well. Underlying these attributes is a hint of vanilla and an oolong tea like mouthfeel that brings all the taste and flavour components together with a final note of class.

When do we roast your coffee?

We roast at least every Monday and Wednesday (roasting days). Our cut off for planning orders for roasting is 2pm on a roasting date. If an order is received after this cut off it will be prioritised on the next roasting day. Most items will be dispatched the next day (Tuesday and Thursday). If we cannot deliver the goods within this time we will tell you immediately and agree on another time for delivery. If we cannot agree on another time, we will offer you a refund. We use a range of different roaster sizes so we can batch roast exactly what we need for that day. This means that no coffee will leave our roastery older than the previous working day.

Delivery Method

We send your coffee by Royal Mail 1st Class post, which aims to deliver within 1 working day. This is not a guarantee but an aim. Royal Mail will not class an item as lost or missing for 15 working days. Please get in touch if you have not received your order within 7 working days of dispatch. For International delivery to Europe we use the Royal Mail International Standard service. This has a delivery aim of 5-10 days.
