Why we love it: This naturally processed Yirgacheffe is full-bodied with notes of strawberry jam and deep dark chocolate. We love this flavor burst as a pour-over or a next level French press.
Who it comes from: This is a new offering from an old favorite - Bedhatu Jibicho! Her farm is located in Worka, where she was born and raised. Her coffee story began in the 1960s after her husband was granted land by the government. She has proudly managed and expanded operations for over 50 years and now, at over 80 years old, she is happy to have her grown children help carry on the rich tradition of coffee cultivation.
Why it matters: A woman-owned, family-operated, single-estate farm in the Gedeb District of Yirgacheffe. Sales of this coffee directly support Bedhatu and her family, contributing to their dream of expanding the farm and establishing an export company. No middleman needed!
