This particular lot was sourced through Royal Coffee Imports and is one of our organic offerings from Ethiopia this year. You can expect this lot to be particularly fruity with notes of blueberry and blackberry and a nice creamy body. A lemon candy acidity and subtle dark chocolate help round out the cup.
This coffee is sourced from family-owned farms organized around the Banko Gotiti Cooperative located in the village of Banko Gotiti in the southern district of Gedeb, Ethiopia. The cooperative was established in 2012 as a separate entity from the larger Worka Cooperative, and currently has approximately 300 members. In 2005, Worka joined the Yirgacheffe Coffee Farmers Cooperative Union (YCFCU), an umbrella organization established in 2002 to support a sustainable coffee supply from cooperatives in the Gedeo ethnic region of Ethiopia. There are twenty-six other cooperatives affiliated with the YCFCU totaling more than 45,000 members.
