He's back. Back with another insane juicy banger! Israel has got to be hands down one of our favourite producers, creating next level Ethiopian coffees year in, year out. This coffee does not disappoint, starting off with a smack you in the face peach note, followed by a sweet honeysuckle taste. This is then followed by floral flavour and a toffee apple finish.
This coffee is produced at Israel Degfa’s private farm Debeka. With only 180 raised beds and just over 100 staff during harvest season, this is one of Israel’s smallest projects.
The Debeka coffee began back in 2017 when Israel joined an origin trip to Brazil to explore new and exciting processing methods to bring back to his farms and mills in Ethiopia. Whilst there, Israel was gifted 2kg of Mundo Novo seeds by a friend.
Initially, the coffee was grown under a sprawling one-hectare greenhouse with all agronomic practices being computer controlled. Disease resistant varieties and other experiments are also enacted at Debeka. This lot is from the second harvest of this experiment and the profile has continued to improve.
