WOTE KONGA / ETHIOPIA
Apricot, Peach, Sparkling, Lime, Nectarine
Elevation: 1800-2200 masl
We have been overwhelmed by the amount of insanely great tasting Ethiopian coffees we have been running through lately. It has been no easy task to filter through them all. At last though, we found a favorite out of the bunch.
This coffee comes from the Wote Konga washing station in the Wote Konga Kebele in the Yirgacheffe region of southern Ethiopia. This fully washed and processed coffee is grown at a very high altitude of 1800-2200 masl. With a single stage fermentation of 18 hours, it was then dried on raised beds for about 10 days there after. It has that classic Lemon and Lime pie like acidity, and bursting out with floral notes on the front end in both aroma and taste. Lots of nice and intense stone fruit in the cup. It is just a really nice and clean classic washed Ethiopian coffee that is sure to please not only that nerdy coffee drinker, but also the more common coffee fan that just wants something pleasant and sweet to wet their whistle.
