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 – when hotter it presents like lemon drizzle cake then as it cools it becomes brighter and more like lemon sherbet. Honey process is just a name, not referring to any actual honey, but coincidentally the processing on this coffee has added a layer of sweetness and texture that is reminiscent of honey.
This coffee is has floral notes, like magnolia, like a washed Ethiopian but also a hint of blueberry which is a common note in a naturally processed Ethiopian. Honey process doesn’t always showcase flavours from both ends of the spectrum so neatly but that’s one of the reasons we brought this coffee onto our list offering.
