This fully washed fresh crop Ethiopian was produced by the Naga Singage Adorsi Washing Station in Aricha, Yirgacheffe and was grown between 1950 and 2150 meters above sea level. The Naga is a very sweet, complex, and floral coffee that has a citrus quality but more importantly a sweet, vanilla-caramel like body that we rarely find in fully washed Yirgacheffe. That alone made this coffee a must-have for us.
This lot was created from 1000 farmers contributing coffees to the Naga Singage washing station, which is managed by Testi Coffee. The Gersi smallholders harvest the Naga Singage coffee between October and January. While picking, they have a clear view of the ‘mountain of reconciliation’. Once picked and collected, the Gersi deliver cherries to the Aricha washing station, found in the neighboring kebele, Aricha.
We love this coffee and are excited to go into year 2 and keep building up our relationship with Trabocca to continue bringing in gems like this Naga Signage. You will not be disappointed in this coffee if you are looking for something that errs on the side of a washed profile in terms of acidity and flavors, but has the sweetness and body that you get with naturals!
