The community of Chelbessa is in Ethiopia’s Yirgacheffe region, an origin known for its ethereal, floral-tasting coffee. Our roast of this fully washed lot brews a silken cup laden with notes of honey and bergamot. Many consider Ethiopia the true origin of coffea arabica; some even claim coffee is “Ethiopia’s gift to the world.” The crop is a part of daily life for much of Ethiopian society, and appreciation of its significance is evidenced by frequent and widespread coffee ceremonies. Yirgacheffe is one of the first regions in Ethiopia to begin washing coffee with the traditional method used today by many high-quality producers. As such, the people there have developed expertise in managing the wet processing of harvests over the last five decades.
