We've been looking forward to sharing the coffee equivalent of a champagne toast with you. This classic washed Ethiopian coffee is from one of the best kept secrets of Ethiopian growing regions, Worka-Sakaro, a neighbor to the more widely known Yirgacheffe region. This coffee has received honors on the cupping table in the birthplace of coffee and at first taste we were so blown away we added it to our Top Shelf Collection. We're so excited to kick of the year with an exclusive batch reserved just for you.
At first sip, you'll taste an initial burst of sweetness, fruit flavors like orange, peach, and apricot, and a sweet buttery weight like a Chardonnay. Its super clean finish culminates into pleasant florals and earthy black tea. Pour a few beans in your hand and you'll notice they're unusually hard and in impeccable condition. These attributes are a result of the high altitude growing environment and care in processing the coffee cherries. Reserve Ethiopia Worka and let's raise our mugs to seizing the morning!
||★★★★★||★★★★★ A smidgen tart, slightly floral, and slightly bark-like. Hintos of caramel present their flavor when cooled. Decent.|
||★★★★★||★★★★★ My husband and I both enjoyed this coffee with the french press. The flavors came out stronger.|
||★★★★★||★★★★★ It was OK. I wAs expecting it to somehow be more bitter or floral and it really wasn't, which is OK!|
||★★★★★||★★★★★ Hmmm, it was okay. Could taste the apricot, which was pleasing. Dirt/earth taste for a light roast. Liked it a bit better with creamer added.|

||★★★★★||★★★★★ 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.|
