Tasting notes: Lemon curd, peach/apricot, grapefruit zest, honeysuckle, plum and cacao nib
Quintessential, "representing the most perfect or typical example of a quality or class." Quintessential is a word that we perhaps use too much, however if you want to know what a washed Yirgacheffe is all about, look no further. It's been a little while since there's been a washed Yirgacheffe on the site. In the recent past, it seems that other near by regions had a little bit of an edge over Yirgacheffe, at least the offerings that came across our cupping table. But this tasty number was source by our importer from the Yetagesu Bulebula's washing station in Sedi Buluki, a small village at Yirgacheffe town. Yetagesu's washing station buys ripe red coffee cherries from small holder coffee farmers around the village and skillfully processes the cherries from pulping, fermentation to drying. After drying, the coffee then is transported to the milling station near Addis Ababa.
