For the 6th consecutive year we are very proud to release this washed lot from Mr Tessema Edima.
Six years ago our collaboration started when Tessema participated in the Operation Cherry Red auction, an auction/competition where our Importer Trabocca searched for the 32 best lots of Ethiopia. Tessema back then was our absolute favourite lot and we had managed to buy a small amount of his beautiful coffee paying up to 35 EUR/kg which was unseen in Ethiopia. After the auction we've reached out to see if we could buy his coffee on a yearly base.
We are always looking forward to cupping this exquisite coffee harvested in prime coffee land in Yirgacheffe, Ethiopia. Typical of this region is the way in which the plantations are managed. The plantation is mostly left alone in its natural semi-wild state. The shade provided by the wild trees in combination with the very fertile soil provide the perfect ecosystem to create a very balanced cup with a lot of fruity, floral notes.
