We Taste - Creamsicle, Meyer lemon, elegant
The beauty of a well-crafted Yirgacheffe is unmistakable - sweet citrus and elegant florals in a juicy cup. This lot from Kochere farmers in the high-elevation foothills of Reko Mountain delivers through their partnership with the award-winning Aricha Washing Station. In the hands of Testi Coffee, their ripe, fresh pick is fully washed and deliberated dried on raised beds. Our light roasting touch shines a spotlight on this washed coffee's bright, juicy profile - favoring longer ratio by-the-cup preparations and nearly "lungo" espresso pulls.
