coffee details

This stunning coffee from Ashenafi Argaw is sourced and processed from cherries in and around Gedeb and Dumerson village, Yirgacheffe. Exceptionally clean and ripe fruit notes make this unusually processed coffee one of the best Ethiopians we've tasted in 2020.

Carbonic Maceration is a form of natural processing in which the drying cherries are flushed with carbon dioxide to initiate anaerobic (oxygen free) fermentation for a period during the drying process. More commonly seen in wine making, this method is becoming increasingly popular among pioneering coffee producers as it helps to develop additional layers of sweet and complex fruit flavour. 

This versatile coffee works well with all brewing methods but high levels of sweetness and complexity make this a particularly enjoyable espresso or flat white.
