This Grade 1 coffee comes from the Aricha Washing Station in Edido, which is a village in the Yirgacheffe region of Ethiopia. The coffee cherries are delivered to the washing station by weight, by various smallholder famers, who, on average, own less than 1/8 hectare of land.
Aricha has the flavour profile of a classic Yirgacheffe, with florals, citrus and milk chocolate. On top of this it has a panela sweetness and notes of green pear. It is one of our favourites of the season. We’ve delayed its release and we’re rather excited to finally share it with you.
