Fruit and Florals. This lot from the Aricha washing station 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. We are stoked to work this into our espresso flow as well as our By-the-Cup program. This lot was a shining star on our buying table this spring, and we are excited to bring this outstanding lot to our customers.

While we are excited about this lot from Aricha, we are equally excited to hear the news out of the Ethiopian government this summer that they are discussing new sourcing guidelines for the coffee industry there. These new guidelines would allow coffee buyers to source directly from wet mills, co-ops, and farms in a way that hasn’t been possible over the past 10 years. We think this will have a fantastic effect on quality, traceability, and prices for farmers there. Stay tuned!
