THE STORY

South of Yirgacheffe, Ethiopia lies the Guji Zone of Sidamo.  The washing station that this coffee comes from uses traditional methods, such as disc pulpers to remove the cherry from the coffee seeds.  This washing station ferments the coffee by submerging it underwater for 72 hours.  The coffee is then agitated with wooden paddles in the tank.  After this, the coffee gets washed and then dried on raised beds.  Case Coffee hand picked this coffee because they really enjoyed its cupping profile.  They found 'amazing tea-like qualities' that are similar to sweet peach tea and earl gray.  Also look for floral tones that balance out the cup.  Enjoy!
