Ethiopia Chelchele

Variety Various
Process Washed 
Altitude 1800 masl
Harvest Nov - Jan
Flavours Peach l Jasmine l Honey

This lot from Chelchele is exactly what I expect from a coffee grown in the Yirgacheffe region. It is delicate and soft with a tea like body and lots of florals. This coffee is just about perfect to me. It is incredibly Clean and Crisp with some beautifully subtle flavour notes like jasmine and light honey. A floral like stone fruit note that reminds me of a peach lingers on the palette. Yum.

From the importer:

This coffee comes from the Chelchele washing station in the district of Kochere in the Yirgacheffe region.

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. We do, however, make every available effort to source coffee from the same washing stations every year, through our export partners and their connections with mills and washing stations.
