About this coffee
Our newest addition to a growing list of dynamic Ethiopian coffees, brought to us by a variety of small landholders in the Gedeo Zone, is the Gedeb Natural.
This heirloom varietal is a natural from the Yirgacheffe Region of Ethiopia and it reminds us of that one friend you have who has a lot to say. You know the one...not as subtle as most people, opinionated and perhaps a little heavy handed with the cologne? While that may not be a favorite in friend choices, it turns out it translates beautifully when it comes to coffee characteristics. When this coffee speaks up, we want to listen, and its aromatic Jasmine perfume is intoxicating in the best way.
Brew yourself a cup and let the floral richness, honey sweetness and tropical acidity do the talking while you sit back and relax. If it happens to get a chance to cool before you swig it all down, you’ll get a glimpse into the nuances of this coffee’s personality as it develops notes of chocolate and brambleberry.
If this is what it’s like to have a chatty, opinionated friend, then maybe it’s time for us to reevaluate our friend choices - we can’t wait to spend more time with this coffee all summer long.
Jasmine, Honey, Mango
This coffee shines when filter brewed: we suggest the Chemex or Kalita brewing devices. Generally, filter brewing produces better coffee clarity (ability to tell flavors apart) than body (texture, weight in your mouth) and we love this coffee's clarity.
