Clifton Coffee - Ethiopia: Biftu Gudina

Sorry - Sold out - it's been popular!

Getting product details...

In the cup, expect an enormous hit of peach fromage frais, incredible sweetness with a complex yet balanced structure of acidity and body.

From Clifton Coffee:

"Simply put, this is one of the very best Ethiopian coffees we’ve ever tasted, if not the best.

Biftu Gudina is a relatively new cooperative started in 2012 as part of sustainable Technoserve project. (Technoserve is an NGO supporting the farmers in setting up washing stations and new cooperative structures with a focus on transparency & increased quality production).

With a strong leadership at the cooperative and a real dedication to quality production, Biftu is continuing to deliver some of the most interesting, unique & delicious coffees in all of Ethiopia.

Other flavours in the cup are vanilla & lilac (think lavender wild honey) and a rosewater finish that just lingers on. Simply delicious! This is definitely not a typical Jasmine & Bergamot Ethiopian."
