Ethiopia Yirga Cheffe Gedeb Asasa


Ethiopia Yirga Cheffe Gedeb Asasa

Gedeb District is located in the the southern part of the Yirga Cheffe zone, and is also the name of the site where the coffee is collected and dried on elevated beds. This Gedeb site has roughly 700 local farmers who bring their coffee here for drying and hand-sorting. The farms are little more than large 'gardens' adjacent to homes, growing heirloom varietals native to the region. Farmers deliver their coffee as whole cherry to the station where it is graded, and then laid out on drying beds. The preparation of this coffee is Grade 1, which for dry-processed lots means a lot of hand-sorting, removing over and under-ripe coffee cherry. The coffee is again sorted after dry-milling in order to identify any additional defects that were missed at the drying beds. Naturals are milled before being transported to Addis, where, again, the coffee is sorted to improve the appearance and cup quality. Competition in the region for cherry is quite strong so farmers are paid well, especially for ripe cherry selection. This year's price to farmers was increased from last years rates because of competition among washing stations, a win for the growers.

Complex sugars, cacao bar. Intoxicating fruit and floral aromatics. Fruit flavors of lemon-lime, red berry, mango, and more. Intense espresso.

Out of all the different coffees I have purchased and tried from Coffee by Gillespie, this one is my favorite so far. I like the flavor and the aroma of it as it is brewing.

I ordered a two lb bag of Ethiopia Yirga Cheffe Gedeb Asasa a couple of weeks ago and it is delicious! I have become kind of particular about my coffee over the past few years (making it difficult to just throw some grounds in an auto drip and hit the button) and I found this product to be very affordable and rich with flavor! Well worth the wait of slower brewing methods. I love the lighter fruitier flavors of East African coffees and Coffee by Gillespie roasts it just right! It is shipped fast and helps me avoid the rush to the coffee shop when I am running out.
