Curator's Notes

Aromatic and lively, this cup tastes like black tea with bright citrus and honey. A classic example of a washed Ethiopian coffee: bright, floral, and packed with jammy sweetness. Pairs well with a slice of kumquat cake drenched in a honey glaze.

Roaster's Notes

The Worka Chelbessa community in Gedeo has built a pristine reputa- tion for producing extremely high quality coffee, and when computer part importer Negusse Debela wanted to pursue coffee as an endeavor, he first wanted to invest in this area because of that reputation. His export company, SNAP, was formed only in 2017, but has finished construction on their own dry mill which gives them full control of the quality of their exported coffees. Coffees at the Worka Chelbessa washing station are soaked for 36-48 hours underwater before being transferred to raised beds to dry for 10-14 days. While this is a pretty standard processing workflow, at Worka Chelbessa the fermentation water is changed constantly to prevent off flavors developing and to keep the coffee clean, and the drying coffee is heavily rotated and sorted to ensure even drying and consistent quality. SNAP’s main focuses are on coffee quality, farmer education, and environmental impact. By establishing an export company with aggres- sive standards, SNAP is able to ensure that the work that’s being done by farmers and at the washing stations is preserved through transport, delivering the highest quality of green coffee possible to coffee roasters around the world. This is our third time offering coffee from Worka Chelbessa. We’re always blown away by the deep, rich berry sweetness these coffees have, and this year in particular we noticed a soft floral quality evenly matched with a juicy acidity. Partnering with Worka Chelbessa through our import partners and SNAP as the exporter truly gives Ruby the best quality coffee imaginable.

"floral notes on the nose. Tasting notes of Earl Grey tea are pretty spot on. This coffee has a light and delicate body."
