Tasting Notes: White Peach, Jasmine, Orange Blossom
This batch of coffee comes from the Koke Washing station in the Yirgacheffe region of Ethiopia. The family owned Koke Washing station was built in 2011 and stands on the side of a hill with coffee grown above and below it. This last harvest included cherries from 96 small scale multi-generational farms. The region of Yirgacheffe is considered by many to be the birthplace of coffee, many of the coffee trees grown in this region are naturally occurring heirloom varietals.
This particular coffee is nice and delicate with a light body but strong tea and fruit aromas on the nose. Stone fruit flavors come through in the initial taste and the cup finishes with those light jasmine tea flavors. Very smooth and nuanced flavor profiles in this cup.
