New wet processed Ethiopia makes its way on to shrub today. This coffee is part of a program that coordinates agronomists and managers for each of the coops they work with, but also has a business adviser assigned that helps the cooperative manage their debt, re-invest in quality improvements at the mill, and verifies distribution of income to all members.
Ethiopia Wet Process Gera Jimma
"...The cup is juicy and sweet, particularly in the light roasts. City to City+ roasts have a red currant fruit, that shifts toward darker plum and black tea notes at Full City roast level. It has hawthorn flower, but seems more violet-like as the cup cools. Mouthfeel is light and juicy. The cup has a bracing brightness especially in the light roasts, and a very well-structured character overall. It's no fruit-bomb Ethiopia coffee, but a retrained and clean cup. If lighter roast SO espresso is your thing, I think this coffee is amazing. No, I mean AMAZING. Really."
