WHO: Desalech Mussie
TASTE NOTES: Guava - Raspberry - Bergamot
You may be feeling the start of the cold, winter bleakness but we're coming in hot with our latest release. Guava, raspberry and bergamot explode with citrusy-funkiness in this Ethiopian coffee. The Christmassy, mulled wine tasting notes can wait a while longer...we're putting the shades on for this one.
Desalech Mussie, a female producer from Harufo Waro in the Yirgacheffe district, has developed the natural coffee we're here to shout about. A mother of 6, Desalech farms 1.6ha of land around her family home at an altitude of 1,902masl. She cultivates the heirloom subvarieties of Kumie, Diga and Wilsho, shaded by Acacia and Sudan Teak (Cordia Africana). This lot was naturally processed on raised African beds for 18 days.
