This coffee is sourced for us by our partners at Royal Coffee in California. From family-owned farms organized around the Banko Gotiti Cooperative located in the village of Banko Gotiti in the southern district of Gedeb, Ethiopia. The cooperative was established in 2012 as a separate entity from the larger Worka Cooperative, and currently has approximately 300 members. In 2005, Worka joined the Yirgacheffe Coffee Farmers Cooperative Union (YCFCU), an umbrella organization established in 2002 to support a sustainable coffee supply from cooperatives in the Gedeo ethnic region of Ethiopia. There are twenty-six other cooperatives affiliated with the YCFCU totaling more than 45,000 members.
This coffee has potent aromatics and an intense fruited character. Thick, Syrupy and with a heavy mouthfeel this coffee has immense body. But it is with that coveted Ethiopian dry process flavor note of Blueberry that it really shines bright.
The Grooverider of our 2020 Ethiopian offerings, this one is bringing that phat berry bass!
