Ethiopia Yirgacheffe Misty Valley
The washed coffees of Yirgacheffe have been loved for their delicate, tea-like aromatics and clean citrus flavor for a long time. Recently the producers in the Gedio region have been reinventing the process in Ethiopia to develop a completely different profile for this well known region. These beans from Misty Valley are a prime example of the fruitiness, complexity and character of these popular Yirgecheffe coffees.
Abdullah Bagersh- the exporter and producer in Misty Valley, puts an incredible amount of care into these beans from start to finish. The ripe cherries are dried on raised beds and are constantly turned (day and night) for the first 48 hours. This ensures even evaporation of moisture to prevent mold and leads to a clean cup.
These beans deliver a cup of coffee with a perfumed floral aroma that leads into a crisp and complex fruit flavor. Notes of blueberry, chocolate, floral and lemony sweetness present in this coffee.
