This is only the third year of production for this Washing Station, the second year in a row that we've had coffee from it but the first that we have had the Washed.
Unlike most producers in Ethiopia, Telila lots are built based on cherry delivered on a given day. Mike and his team are meticulous with their quality control, even storing their parchment coffee in sealed bags - a first for Ethiopia that required governmental approval.
For every lb of coffee purchased from Telila, Osito Coffee (who imported this coffee for us) has made a $0.10 donation to the Kacho Tulla Primary School, in the village of Kecho Anderacha.
‘Classic’ Ethiopian washed coffees often have lots of bright citrus notes and this coffee has notes of lemon but here it's a deeper aromatic note that we think is more similar to lemongrass. This is a washed coffee with a huge amount of sweetness, with lots of ripe, juicy nectarine coupled with a deep sultana sweetness.
