Fruit and Florals. This lot from the Wuri washing station in Worka exemplifies what we look for in great Ethiopian Yirgs. The cup opens with subtle citrus notes, transitions into stone-fruit sweetness, and ends with a clean finish and the lingering scent of Jasmine florals. This lot was a shining star on our buying table this spring, and we are excited to bring this outstanding lot to our customers.
The coffee supply chain is built on relationships. Nine years ago, our Green Buyer, Charles, was working with coffee farmers in Ethiopia and met Chris Davidson, there buying coffee for Atlas Coffee Importers. This year Charles and Chris are again working together to bring this awesome Ethiopian coffee to our customers.
