Variety, growing conditions and processing methods all have dramatic effects on a coffee’s flavour characteristics. The Discovery genre celebrates the diverse and expressive flavours made possible by these distinctions.
Located in the Gedeo zone of southern Ethiopia’s Gedeb district, the wet mill of Chelbesa is presenting specialty lots of an astonishing quality for such a young prospect.
The region’s farms enjoy an incredibly fertile soil type, rich in iron with a high acidity content. Realising the site’s incredible potential the mill was established in 2019 to act as a processing hub exclusive to the immediate area, with ceramic holding tanks used to bring clarity to the coffee and quicken fermentation times.
This washed Dega and Wolisha lot is especially sweet and floral, with notes of honeysuckle, nectarine and melon.
