Lime, Orange & Thyme
In the cup: Lime, orange & thyme
Like the majority of Ethiopian coffees, this Guji Gigesa was purchased through the Ethiopian Commodity Exchange (ECX). Chosen for its complex cup profile, this coffee represents what is so characterful in washed Ethiopian coffees from this region; sparkling acidity, heady herbal aromas, and plenty of sweetness.
G1 denotes the highest grade given by the ECX, praising the consistency and quality of this lot. Sadly, we can only trace this coffee back as far as the region in which it was grown, and not to the individual smallholders. This is the nature of the coffee industry in Ethiopia, which has worked well in the past, but as discerning coffee drinkers look to consuming more ethically this system is slowly beginning to change. Some lots are now traceable to washing stations, so we can only hope for further improvements in the future.
We currently only ship within the UK, but we do ship orders daily. Whenever you buy coffee from us, we make sure it arrives at its peak.
