  • Black cherry, dried fruits, dark chocolate, creamy mouthfeel, heavy body.
  • The coffee from Gigesa shines at multiple roast levels! Keep it light for a lot of fruity notes in a pour-over and full immersion brewing or take to a medium roast to highlight the milk chocolate sweetness and heavy body. Tastes great in blends and even better as a single origin espresso!

The end result is a cup full of cherry notes, tropical fruit and milk chocolate with a wine-like peppery finish and syrupy body. Delicious! The Gigesa washing station is owned and operated by the Yonis family. As part of the quality control process, fresh cherries are floated in water to separate lower qualities before depulping. Traditional disc pulpers are used and the coffee is allowed at least 24 hours to ferment before being fully washed and set to dry on raised beds for 10-12 days on average.

I haven’t had an Ethiopia like this in a long time! The fruit notes definitely stood out. I should of stayed more on the light roast side ended up pushing it to medium, it was still good. I let it degass for 2 days and OH MY SOUL!!! This was treat!!! Definitely getting this one again!!!

Yes! The coffees from the people at Gigesa station never disappoint! Thanks for sharing your experience, Marcos.

In love with this coffee!

I absolutely love this coffee. Roasted light, and it is bursting with flavor. I immediately ordered 20kg as this will be in my rotation. I brewed it for family and even those that prefer a dark roast were pleasantly surprised at how enjoyable this was. I may drink more than I sell! :)

Great Ethiopia single origin espresso

This is a very good single origin espresso. Creamy, chocolatey, fruity and bright without being tart. Super well rounded and my current go to espresso. Works well as a single shot, as well as paired with cold milk and warm milk.

Great Fruity Natural

Delicious! Classic Ethiopia greatness in a natural. I roasted it on the lighter side to bring out the fruitier notes.
