Bean Box Breakdown

No coffee experience compares to a classic washed Ethiopian. Nuanced, delicate, floral, tea-like, with a complex bouquet of flavors: these coffees have stood the test of time, remaining as popular today as they were centuries ago. Ethiopia is coffee's "Garden of Eden", where up to 10,000 varietals of coffee still thrive in their native habitat of rich soils, high elevation, and a long, slow growing season.

This special roast is from Worka-Sakaro; together with neighboring Yirgacheffe, they are considered to be the finest coffee-growing regions in the country. These beans are double-washed: once to remove the fruit, as standard, then moved to clean water for an additional soak. The Wuri washing station is known for experimentation with special processing methods that push the envelope of what fine Ethiopian coffee can be. In this case, the extended washing results in a remarkable, enhanced version of the sweet, yet delicate, washed Ethiopian profile.

This cup exhibits a high amount of sweetness, flavor complexity, and balance. Look for an initial burst of sweetness, fruit flavors like orange, peach, and apricot, and a sweet, buttery weight like Chardonnay. Its super-clean finish resolves with a burst of florals and earthy black tea. This is a rare, exquisite cup for any coffee connoisseur.

"Wow - Right off the brew, this coffee is bursting with apricot/orange to the nose. Juicy, almost like you're drinking an apricot/tangerine tea infused with coffee. A light body, amazingly flavorful with bright notes of candied citrus and peach fruit. A new favorite."

"Brewed in my french press. Smooth yummy coffee with fruity citrus notes, nice light taste."
