ETHIOPIA CHELCHELE ESPRESSO

Notes of Strawberry, Guava and White Chocolate

 

Lower on acidity, but this coffee has a fruity bite with a round mouthfeel and subtle florals in the aftertaste.

This coffee comes from the Chelchele washing station, which is in the kebele, or village, of Chelchele, or district of Kochere, in the Yirgacheffe region. Chelchele coffees tend to have a nice backbone of sweetness from toffee and/or soft nuts like almond, with a floral and citrus overtone. .

Coffees in Ethiopia are typically grown on very small plots of land by farmers who also grow other crops. The majority of smallholders will deliver their coffee in cherry to a nearby washing station or central processing unit, where their coffee will be sorted, weighed, and paid for or given a receipt. The washing stations serve as many as several hundred to sometimes a thousand or more producers, who deliver cherry throughout the harvest season: The blending of these cherries into day lots makes it virtually impossible under normal circumstances to know precisely whose coffee winds up in which bags on what day, making traceability to the producer difficult. Every available effort, however, is made to source coffee from the same washing stations every year.
