Farm to Cup Story
Ethiopia is the birthplace of coffee. After centuries of meticulous cultivation, it comes as no surprise that the coffees grown in Ethiopia are known as some of the most unique and distinct throughout the world. This offering is brought to us from Yirgacheffe, Ethiopia, and exhibits characters that are trademark of the area it is grown in. In a cup of The Highlands Ethiopia, you’ll taste the complexity of Earl Grey tea and citrus. With refined notes of bergamot and black tea paired with the acidity of cranberries and lime, this is an offering you won’t want to miss.
This lot is sourced from 650 family-owned farms located within the Gedeo Zone, Southern Nations, Nationalities, and Peoples’ Region, Ethiopia. Producers deliver ripe cherries to Abiyot Ageze’s washing station every day, where the coffee is carefully sorted, pulped, fermented, and then washed. The washed parchment is carefully sorted and immediately placed on raised beds, constructed to ensure proper air circulation. Coffee is turned regularly to prevent uneven drying. After the moisture is reduced to less than 12 percent, the parchment is transported to Addis Ababa to be milled and prepared for export.
