Tasting Notes: Rose, Blueberry and Peach
This natural process organic Ethiopia comes to us from the Guji region. The microclimates there encourage the development of diverse flavor profiles that present beautifully. The Allona Washing Station sits at the center of a newly built road network that connects marketplaces, schools, and residential communities. Cherries delivered to Allona are de-pulped and washed on the same day, and the pulped beans are graded for the first time by weight. After fermentation, once the mucilage has been rinsed off, the coffee is graded again and sorted by density. The coffee is carefully monitored and sorted throughout the drying stage to ensure uniform drying. The African drying beds are covered at midday to protect the coffee from peak sunshine and again at night to prevent dew moisture from seeping in. The attentiveness of the women involved in processing procedures ensures the coffee scores highly at the Allona Washing Station.
