The coffee plantation: This coffee comes from the Chelchele washing station, which is in the kebele, or village, of Chelchele, in the words, or district, of Kochere, in the Yirgacheffe region. Chelchele coffees tend to have a nice backbone of sweetness from toffee and/or soft nuts like almond, with a floral and citrus overtone.

Coffees in Ethiopia are typically grown on very small plots of land by farmers who also grow other crops. The majority of smallholders will deliver their coffee in cherry to a nearby washing station or central processing unit, where their coffee will be sorted, weighed, and paid for or given a receipt. The washing stations serve as many as several hundred to sometimes a thousand or more producers, who deliver cherry throughout the harvest season

Coffee processing system: Natural

Tasting notes: Sweet and savory with tart citric acidity, cocoa, berry and lemon flavors.

Yirgacheffe is outstanding!

As a relative newcomer to good coffee, and following introduction through a good friend, I have been blown away by Southwood's Yirgacheffe and it's now an essential part of my day. Excellent flavour as espresso, and I've now passed on the recommendation to many other friends.
