Chelbesa - Ethiopia
Floral aromatics of tea rose make way to a clean silky texture and vibrant notes of white grape and tangerine.
Grown in the sought-after Yirgacheffe zone in the Gedeb region of Ethiopia, Chelbesa is just one of those famous coffee areas we’ve come to adore. The region is known for coffees with delicate floral aromatics, tea-like textures and clean citrus-forward flavour profiles and this year's lot is no different. With stunning floral aromatics of tea rose making way to a clean silky texture and vibrant notes of white grape and tangerine, this coffee is sure to turn heads once again as a yearly favourite on the menu.
This specific lot itself is made up of regional 1974-1975 Jarc selections and local landraces that are grown by over 486 smallholder farmers in naturally occurring semi-forested or garden conditions in the Yirgacheffe Zone and processed at the famous Chelbesa Washing station. Once handpicked at peak ripeness the cherry is brought to the washing station to be washed and dried for 15 days on raised beds.
