Let the light shine in! This sweet, citrusy Ethiopian is a pure sip of sunshine. Ethiopia Wachu Wolichu is a light roast with complex character, round, juicy notes of cranberry and blackcurrant, sugary lemon custard, and a fresh jasmine-bergamot finish that feels like throwing open the window on a summer day. Wachu Wolichu is the newest roast from Velton’s Coffee Company, one of Seattle’s finest independent roasters, and we’re basking in it.
Washed Ethiopian coffees like this one are beloved classics of the coffee world. At their best, they’re sweet and clean, with a bright profile of fruits and florals and a tea-like delicacy. As the birthplace of coffee, Ethiopia is unmatched in the sheer diversity of its beans, where most coffee comes from small farms and grows naturally in wild forests. The typical Ethiopian coffees are heirloom varietals, meaning an unspecified mix of native coffee plants, but Wachu Wolichu is unique for being 90% Bourbon. It’s a special treat to taste African Bourbon, the origin varietal for most coffee beans now grown in Central and South America.
If a sweet, sugary sip of citrus, berries, and florals is “wachu” want, Wolichu Wachu is what you’ll get! We love the bright fruit flavors, and the smooth, citrusy floral finish that makes this cup a joy from the first sip to the last. Reserve a bag of Velton’s Ethiopia Wolichu Wachu today, and enjoy the morning sunrise— in your cup.
