Washed - Ethiopia Heirloom - Shara, Guanga, Yirgacheffe


This coffee is named after the local tribe, “Adado.” In these coffees, typically apricots and peaches with supportive citrus and floral higher tones come together in a delightful cup. 

Until recently, coffee grown by smallholders and co-ops in Ethiopia were required to be sold through the ECX, where lots were classified by general region, quality (Grade 1–5), and escaped of most of their traceability. In March of 2017, the prime minister of Ethiopia approved a reform allowing co-operatively owned washing stations to export their coffee directly, which allows for separation of top coffee lots, higher prices for farmers, and increased recognition for the best quality coffees in Ethiopia.

This means soon there will be greater traceability, allowing us to buy more directly from the same washing stations year in and year out, and opens the potential for partnerships on a more micro level.
