12 oz WHOLE BEAN BAG ONLY
This Ethiopian Sidamo has complex fruit notes of citrus and tropical fruits. It comes to mind strwberries, passionfruit, orange and papaya. The finish has citrus and a long black tea-like mouthfeel aftertaste.
This lot comes from the Dereje station in the Deri Kochowa kebele in Hagere Mariam woreda. Fairly off the map in comparison to other Sidama coffee areas, the coffee from Deri Kochowa region has made quite a mark in the last two years. Growing altitudes around Dereje range from about 1800 to 2100 meters. Processing is handled in the traditional manner, long fermentation to break down mucilage, followed by the wooden paddle treatment to remove the rest of the fruit, overnight washing, and then drying on raised African beds. Production is meticulous and clean, which definitely plays a heavy role in the resulting clean cup.
