A superb washed Grade One coffee from the Konga micro region of Yirgacheffe is now available. This was one of the favourites on the cupping table this year! This amazing Ethiopian is another fantastic new crop coffee into our store. Just like the many and varied flavour attributes of red wine in the different regions of New Zealand so are the many and varied flavours of good Ethiopian coffee. Being a washed coffee this is clean and free of any fermented beans (more commonly found in natural processed coffees) which are floated off during the washing process. It is estimated there are between six thousand and ten thousand original Heirloom varietals in the highlands of Ethiopia! This coffee reflects the rich and distinct Konga region appelations of citrus, stonefruit and bergamot notes with rich dark chocolate goodness reflected in the cup.
TASTE NOTES: Complex peach stone fruit and lemon acidity with floral bergamot notes, silky mouthfeel and a rich dark chocolate lingering finish.
