ethiopia, banco gotete washed filter
£9.00 – £25.00
About this coffee:
This exceptional lot was processed, dry milled and exported by Legu Trading. The coffee was grown by smallholder farmers living around the town of Banco Gotete in Gedeo County, Yirgacheffe region.
Varieties of coffee grown in Ethiopia are traditionally referred to as ‘heirloom’ , a phase which often masks the wide assortment of varieties that may be present within various regions, or sometimes within farms.
Many of these varieties will have been developed by Ethiopia’s Jimma Agricultural Resarch Centre (JARC), which, since the late 1960s, has worked to develop resistant and tasty varieties for the Ethiopian coffee industry and also to provide the agricultural extension training needed to cultivate them. The dual factors of Ethiopian Commodity Exchange and a low awareness of formal variety names outside Ethiopia has meant that the JARC’s work has historically been under-recognised.
However JARC are finally getting recognition for the had work they have done for decades, and information on Ethiopia’s vast array of varieties are coming to light. This coffee is packed full of beautiful berry flavours that you’d expect from the region, and the bergamot and florals aroma that you expect from this amazing country.
