Very occasionaly, we taste a coffee that completely blows our minds - our expectations are high all the time, but sometimes, there's a coffee that raises the bar higher than we knew. This is it. This Grade 1 Guji is completely sublime - it's got this long finish on it, that is something akin to peppermint tea, it works great as an espresso, makes an awesome filter, and a stand out cold drip iced coffee. Basically, it's a winner.
Grown in the Sidamo region, south of Addis Ababa; the Hagermaryam ward is the most southern and productive province in the country. Around 700 farmers are part of the collective Cheri mill, which lies between 1,600 and 1,900 metres above sea level and benefits from the ideal climate for growing coffee - lots of rainfall and optimal temperatures together with rich soil make for a spectacular tasting coffee.
