This is everything you love in a summer coffee. Delicate florals, bright citrus and sweet caramels. This washed processed Ethiopian consisting of local landrace we call "Candy Flower" for its sweet candied texture and delicate lingering florals. Candy Flower comes from the Chelbesa Danche washing station. Smallholder farmers around the village of Chelbesa deliver pre-sorted, ripe cherries to this washing station. The freshly harvested cherries are then de-pulped and placed into clean, concrete tanks for fermentation, a process that takes up to 72 hours. The coffees are soaked overnight for another 24 hours before it is dried on raised beds for 10 days. Coffees are regularly raked and sorted throughout the drying process to ensure consistent flavour development.
