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.
||★★★★★||★★★★★ Like Nicole stated, the flavor was more subtle than your average Ethiopian coffee, but I still liked it. This could be a good trial coffee to determine if Ethiopian coffees are your thing.|
||★★★★★||★★★★★ Couldn't describe it any better than "a sunrise in your cup!" Delicious!!!|
||★★★★★||★★★★★ Unlike a typical Ethiopian. Very light and smooth. Was hoping for a bit more flavor.|
||★★★★★||★★★★★ Um. Can't do grapefruit in coffee. Sorry folks, this is worse than grapefruit in beer, it's just a no... I couldn't even drink one cup. Milk made it worse.|
||★★★★★||★★★★★ Delicious coffee. The grapefruit and bergamot flavors really stood out to me, the latter which I loved. Kind of creamy and rich but yet tea-like at the same time. Wonderful.|

||★★★★★||★★★★★ I thought this was really delicious. I was unsure at first with the flavors, but it was actually pretty decent. Light, smooth, light lemon flavor went well with creamer|
