We typically look for washed Ethiopian coffee from the Yirgacheffe region because it's got some name recognition in the coffee world, and it has a wonderfully floral profile. This year, we were pleasantly surprised to come across this coffee from the Limu region northwest of Yirgacheffe. It has the floral notes we like in a Yirgacheffe with a little citrus punch and a lot of dark chocolate. It's an overall sweet coffee, well balanced, forgiving to brew, and consistent. This one impresses us, and for minimal effort on a batch brewer, it can impress your morning rush as well.

Gera Farm is stretched over the highland areas of the Gera district, reaching heights of 1900-2100 masl, extremely ideal for Arabica coffee. The production system is based on sustainable principles. This means that Gera Farm puts a lot of effort into protecting the environment while farming: no chemical fertilizers are being used during cultivation and all coffee is shade grown. For the employees of the farm, Gera Farm provides housing, schooling, portable water, electricity, health care, and recreation facilities – free of charge.

Packaged in 12 oz bags.
