Tasting Notes


The first moment I tasted this coffee, I thought, "Amaretto".  I sipped it again and thought, "Oh, that's good."  As I went through and did my full analysis (Flavor, Finish, aroma, complexity, etc.), I couldn't help but think that this is just a good clean flavorful cup of coffee.  This is the first washed Ethiopian Gold Label in a while and it lives up to the billing.


Coffee Production / Farm: 


Koke is a family-owned washing station that lies on the side of a hill in the Yirgacheffe region. The Koke Washing Station has ideal growing conditions with high elevations and plentiful water sources. Their coffee cherries are grown all over the hills above and below the station. Along with their own coffee, they process coffee beans for over 2,000 small-scale multigenerational farmers, most of which grow an average of 6,000 coffee trees.

Yirgacheffe is the administrative center of the coffee-growing district. 40,000 coffee farmers in this region are part of the Yirgacheffe Coffee Farmers Cooperative Union (YCFCU). This membership allows the coffee farmers to be exempt from the Ethiopian Coffee Exchange (ECX), which allows them to receive a premium for their premium coffees.
