This is a traditional natural coffee from Banko Chelchele, Ethiopia, produced by smallholders organized around METAD’s Hambela Coffee Estate. It is certified organic.
The coffee is immensely sweet and has a fresh fruit brightness like sweet peaches, kiwi, and blackberry. These notes pair exquisitely with floral flavors, which we found comparable to lavender, tea, and citrus blossom.
Our roasters found the coffee has a tendency to fly especially in late stages, and suggest keeping an eye on your heat delta.
When brewed, our baristas found the coffee to be fairly soluble and enjoyable at multiple pour-over extractions.
