Ethiopians are here! The first on our line up is a stunning natural from a privately owned washing station, Hadeso, in Ethiopia's Guji zone. Because who doesn't love a Guji?
The majority of the 650 or so families who contribute cherries farm organically on tiny plots of land, just 205 hectares in size. Coffee is their main cash crop and their farms are situated on very high elevation, ideal for the slow ripening of cherries, resulting in dense beans and sweet and complex coffee.
This coffee was spread evenly on African beds to dry in the sun.
