Climpson & Sons - Single Origin: Gelena Abaya, Ethiopia

Sorry - Sold out - it's been popular!

Getting product details...

Ethiopia is known as the birthplace of coffee. There are more than 1.1 million coffee farmers (smallholders) representing 95% of the production. The varieties are referred to collectively as Ethiopian heirloom, which is a myriad of local native typica hybrids and new improved varietals based on the old strains. The two main growing areas are in the west and south. Most coffees are organic by default.

From Climpson & Sons:

We are excited to bring you the Gelena Abaya from the Yirgacheffe region in Oromia, Ethiopia. You can expect vibrant flavours of bergamot and raspberry, with subtle undertones of jasmine. An amazing coffee no matter what brew method you are using, and guaranteed to wow any coffee aficionado. This fantastic coffee comes from an area of 750 small holder farms with the Gelena Abaya mill processing the fruit at harvest. Once delivered to the mill the cherries are graded, sorted, de-pulped and then fermented underwater for between 36 - 48 hours. All of the water used in this process comes from the local river, the Chelba. After the washing process the coffee is placed onto raised African drying tables for a period that generally lasts up to 2 weeks, slowly reaching a moisture content of 12% or less. This meticulous approach to processing is essential and the resulting cup is a vibrant citrus addition to our single origin range.
