Ethiopia Gedeb Wuri Grade Zero
Ethiopia Gedeb Wuri grade zero is one you for the books. If you are considering which coffee to try, look no further. This washed Ethiopia coffee is clean, crisp, and slightly tart in a pleasant way when considering the cupping notes. Cupping the coffee we found notes of Lychee, Honeysuckle, and Sugarcane. The zero refers to the milling process and separation of defects from the good coffee to achieve better than grade one standards.
Technically Gedeb is in the Yirgacheffe region. However this is not a blueberry/floral profile that most attribute to a Yirgacheffe. The taste leans closer to a Guji with fruit, floral, and sweet notes. The word wuri in Gedeo language translates to "high altitude" and this highlights why high elevation coffee tastes so great. High elevation coffee allows the cherry to grow slower and develop more complex flavors. After harvesting the coffee cherry fruit is stripped at the wet mill, fermented for 48 hours, and washed with fresh water. Multiple passes through a color sorter and extra close attention in the hand sorting phase yields a coffee with the goal of zero defects. The ends result is a clean washed Ethiopia that highlights the efforts of the producers.
