From Jeremy @ Long & Short Coffee:
This coffee is from a privately owned farm in Guji - easily our favourite coffee growing region in Ethiopia for its trademark florals thanks to the almost mythical terroir.
Ato Esmael and his family have owned the Kayon Mountain farm since 2012 where they planted Heirloom varietal coffee trees on the 240 hectare plot, in the midst of a natural forest high up in the mountains between 1900-2100 metres above sea level.
Last year we had the natural version of this coffee which went down a storm. Whilst we wait for the 2018 return of last year’s hero, here we present the washed process version of the same coffee from the Kayon Mountain Farm.
As usual with washed process Ethiopian coffees, expect bags of clarity yet still bursting with fruity flavour. It’s brilliant in a completely different way.
Bergamot is the key and most desirable tasting note here. Expect a tea-like lightness with Jasmine florals on the nose. Citric acidity is well-balanced and not overpowering. Finally, this coffee is rounded off with a sweet and smooth honey finish.
