This lively heirloom coffee introduces itself with aromas of nectarine, marzipan, and Swiss chocolate. We found notes of green grape and butterscotch in the round-bodied cup alongside fresh pineapple acidity. The aftertaste features candied almond and allspice. "Brothers Musa and Mustefa Abalulesa own and operate two farms in Western Ethiopia's Gomma District, within the larger Oromia region. Known for their delicate care in cherry selection and wet processing, they have been entrusted with processing quality seed for distribution to farmers across the region and government seed banks. At Mustefa's facility there is a separate area for seed preparation, with rows and rows of dried parchment coffee covered in fine ash to inhibit mold growth while in storage. "Several years ago the brothers began farming for green bean export, with Crop to Cup being their first buyer. "Before much of the undergrowth was cleared to farm coffee—dense tree coverage remains for shade growing—this jungle parcel at almost 7,000 feet was a hideout for their father, Abalulessa, a guerilla fighting against the Derg (the oppressive military government of the time). Having failed to capture him, the government turned to the local community with a bounty. His health deteriorating and near death, Abalulessa turned to an old friend and, as thanks for nursing him through his final months, told him to tell the government he had killed him, and thus benefit from the bounty. Abalulessa died in 1977 and as part of an amnesty and reconciliation program, the government gave the land to the family, which they now farm along with another plot 7km away."

Roast Level: Light Medium
A Light Medium Roast coffee, sometimes referred to as a "City Roast" or "American Roast," lies between a light and medium roast. This roast level strikes a balance by preserving the coffee bean's unique characteristics while allowing for a moderate development of body and flavor. The beans have a medium brown color, exhibiting a slight sheen of oils, providing a more balanced and nuanced flavor profile. A Light Medium Roast typically highlights the coffee's inherent fruity, floral, or citrus notes, while also providing some of the deeper, richer flavors associated with medium roasts.
Bean Source Country: Ethiopia
Widely regarded as the birthplace of coffee, Ethiopia boasts diverse and complex flavors, from bright, floral, and citrusy in Yirgacheffe to wine-like and berry-toned in Sidama. The country's heirloom varieties, combined with unique processing methods, make Ethiopian coffee truly distinctive and sought-after by enthusiasts worldwide.
