We’ve talked a bit about Ethiopia’s unique coffee history in a previous post, but today we bring you a new coffee from the Yirgacheffe region:
Meet the Bean: Ethiopia Yirgacheffe, Gedeo Zone
Tasting Notes: Tart orange, peach and white grape with a creamy mouthfeel and sweet chocolate aftertaste
Varietal: Variety Ethiopian heirloom varieties
Process: Method Fully Washed, Dried on Raised Beds
About the Farm: The Adado Coffees are from the Gedeo zone, and are named after the local Adado tribe. The region comprises of 7,000 farmers, contributing to eight mills and exporting 20-30 containers annually. Adado is a favorite region of Yirgacheffe for Cafe Imports. You’ll find a lot of stone fruit flavors in coffees from this area. Apricots and peaches with supportive citrus and floral higher tones come together in a delightful cup. The natural process of these lots really complement the typical profile of the washed coffee beautifully.
One of the great things about Ethiopian coffees is the complete mix of varieties. It is estimated that somewhere between 6000-10,000 varieties exist naturally in these highlands, the origin of coffee. The cross-pollination of genetics is totally amazing.
This coffee was sourced through Cafe Imports, along with much of the description.
