ETHIOPIA Yirgacheffe Dumerso (Natural) - Whole Beans
Tasting Notes : Delicate and high-toned. Raspberry cider, dried hibiscus flower, liquorice root, roasted cacao nib in aroma and cup. Juicy, gently sweet acidity; light, satiny mouthfeel. The quietly sweet finish is redolent of cacao nib and dried hibiscus in the short, walnut in the long.
Yirgacheffe is a coffee region in southern Ethiopia that produces distinctive coffees from traditional varieties of Arabica long grown in the region. This is a “natural” or dry-processed version, meaning the beans were dried inside the fruit, encouraging a flavor profile that is rounder and lower-toned than the more familiar wet-processed floral- and citrus-toned Yirgacheffe profile.
The Dumerso washing station is located near the town of Yirgacheffe and is run by Hirut Birhanu and Mahder Birhanu.
They have a cupping lab inside the washing station so that the quality of the coffee can be checked before being sold, the coffee is then quality checked again once it reaches the Ethiopian Tea and Coffee Authority (ECTA) prior to shipment. The ECTA was re-formed in 2016 in a move to enhance the productivity and quality of coffee and tea in Ethiopia. All coffee must pass through ECTA before being exported for a quality inspection.
