WHAT

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 a long time.

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

In the cup expect sweet white peach , passion fruit purée and orange zest.
