Tasting Notes

This is the first Gold Label washed Ethiopian coffee that we've had in a while.  It stands out because it is just so good and juicy.  As it cools, it resembles a nice tropical juice, but hot it is delicate and floral.  It has flavors of lychee, mango, and pear.  But I highlight in the photo, the black tea, and honey sweetness.  This coffee is easy to roast because it has such a delicious and varying flavor profile depending on roast level.

About The Farm / Origin

Hunda Oli means “the greatest,” in Oromo, the language of the Oromo people, who make up the largest ethnic group in Ethiopia.

The Kata Muduga Multi-Purpose Farmer’s Cooperative Union was established in the Gera District, in the Jimma Zone, in August 2016. The cooperative processes coffee with eco-friendly Penagos machines, which use minimal water. One hundred sixty-one members of the co-op contributed to this coffee.

The beans were fermented in soaking tanks for 12 hours, then dried for four to six hours on raised beds fitted only with mesh wire, to allow the water to drain off quickly. Afterward, netting was put over the mesh wire, and the parchment was dried on the tables for 9 to 11 days.
