This coffee is from the Konga Washing Station in the Kebele of Wote, which is in the Yirgacheffe district of Southern Ethiopia. The owner of the mill, Mr. Mergya, employs roughly one hundred workers who process approximately three containers of coffee per year.
Approximately 800 farmers contribute to this washing station, growing coffee at an altitude of 1,800-2,200 meters above sea-level. Once delivered to the mill, workers meticulously hand sort the cherries before wet processing. Once processed, the coffee is sun-dried on raised beds that are typical in Ethiopia. Once dried to around 13% moisture, the coffee is moved to a warehouse where it dries slowly to 11-12%, which helps to explain why these coffees taste so great even after several months!
A lighter side of citrus life.

Pleasant and delicate, brewed on my Aeropress. Not overly acidic like some more berry-forward Africans, but still sweet and fruity. A light-medium mouthfeel, quite well rounded.

Notes of old rubber tires, and cuban cigars. Hints of coriander, nutmeg, and floral wafts of bougainvillea.
This one will stay with you long after your cup has cooled and emptied. Takes me back to the old country.

This coffee is delicious. The fruit notes are subtle enough to balance the flavors perfectly. Will definitely be ordering this again.
