surrounding the Werka village deliver freshly picked coffee to Testi’s Nensebo washing station in the Nensebo district, located in the West Arsi zone. Each farmer has an average of 2-5 hectares of certified organic coffee and typically will manage and pick their own coffee and immediately transport it to the Nensebo station. After cherries are floated in water as a quality check to remove “floaters”, they are spread over raised beds to dry. The coffee is constantly rotated on the beds to ensure even drying, and any underripe cherries are picked out during the drying process. Drying time for this coffee is approximately 15-18 days depending on the weather.
We are blown away by the cup profile of this coffee! The perfect growing conditions, and attention to detail from the organic cultivation and picking to the processing, all come together to produce a beautifully unique cup.
We note lots of berries (particularly strawberry) with a nice citrus acidity and soft, creamy body all wrapped up in a unique flavor of fresh yogurt.
Really love the strawberry in the cup. This is a great Ethiopian natural if you want that fruity taste. It’s also got a nice chocolate flavor as well. Already buying again, it’s that good.
Silky creamy body, milk chocolate, strawberry/blackberry, clean finish. From a 20%RDT, 410F end temp, 4:30 DE and 9:17 FC roast. Simply delicious! I can't wait to roast more this. Especially an espresso roast.
