flavor notes explained

Chocolate wafer - This coffee is complex in a lot of fun ways. Straight away, we picked up some dark chocolate and nutty notes. We felt pulling these together in one single note helped communicate that front end profile

Melon - A very pleasant sweetness sits in this cup. Due to a lack of prevalent perceived acidity, we felt melon best communicated that sweetness. 

Rose - This coffee is very floral! With lots of aromatic nuggets early in the cup, we definitely wanted to take note of that for the description.

about Smallholder Farms

This coffee was produced by smallholder farmers in the Yirgacheffe and Guji regions. The sweet, fruity profile of Ethiopia Acacia Washed is selected to represent the classic flavors of some of Ethiopia’s best recognized coffee producing regions. Smallholder produced coffees reflect the work of whole communities, and the Ethiopia Yirgacheffe Washed is produced by the smallholder farmers who characterize the coffee production landscape of Ethiopia.

In these southern regions of Ethiopia farmers pick coffee selectively, harvesting only ripe cherries individually by hand. Pickers rotate among the trees every eight to ten days, choosing only the cherries which are at peak ripeness. Coffee is depulped and washed by hand in cement canals at community washing stations. After fermenting in water to loosen the mucilage, wooden paddles are used to fully wash the coffee. Coffee is then placed on raised beds to dry in the sun.
