Getting product details...

An elegant, delicate & floral cup with an abundance of lapsang & asam tea notes; this coffee suits both filter and espresso drinkers.

From Clifton Coffee:

"We are blessed with an abundance of beautiful washed Yirg's this season, and this - our 2nd of 4 selections we've made this year after the delicious Biftu Gudina is a beautiful contrast.

Hailing from the town of Ch'elelek'tu in the Kochere region of Yirgacheffe, The Ethiopian Chelelektu is a washed coffee with all the classic notes we find so highly intoxicating from coffees of this region. Ethiopian Chelelektu is a washed heirloom variety grown at 1850-1950 meters above sea level. Ripe cherries are delivered to mill where cherries are graded, sorted, de-pulped and then fermented under water for between 36 - 48 hours, depending on temperature, humidity and other factors. Ethiopian fermentation times are generally longer than other African countries, as temperatures are generally cooler in the highlands."
