Typically, coffees from Ethiopia are sold through the Ethiopia Commodity Exchange (ECX) save for some cooperatives and unions.Information gets lost during this process so this coffee would've been simply known as 'Limu Grade 1' to coffee buyers. Recently though, private and direct sales have been allowed so we know that this coffee comes from Musa Aba Lulesa's farm near Limu Kossa in the Oromia region.
Why We Like This Coffee
I wanted to roast a washed Ethiopian coffee as a challenge to myself to wrangle out those sweet and delicate flavors. Plus, there's just something about spring that brings out a desire for floral notes. This is likely going to be a limited-run for us moving into the summer.
What You Can Expect
A soft and light bodied coffee perfect for a sunny day pour-over. Expect lemon zest and peaches at first sip followed by a sweet aftertaste of light brown sugar.
