This Ethiopia comes from the Testi Ayla washing station, located close to the Shantawene community. We love coffees from this region for their clear notes of stone fruit as well as the delicate florals brought forth with meticulous brewing practices. This coffee has all that, and more, thanks to the hard work of Faysel Yonis and the team at the washing station. Grown by smallholder farmers throughout the Harenna Forest Preserve, each small picking is delivered to the station and then meticulously sorted for only the ripest cherries. Sorting is standard practice throughout the three collection sites, as well as depulping with cold groundwater in order to extend the fermentation times for up to 48 hours. This extended fermentation time creates an incredibly complex coffee on the cupping table. Our friends at Trabocca Coffee recognized this stunning lot early in the harvest and flagged a sample for us, where we promptly booked the entire lot for this collaboration.
