Kaffa Oromia
Flavour Description:

 

Region: Gedeo zone, Southern Ethiopia

Co-operative: Tumticha Coop, Yirgacheffe Coffee Farmers Co-op Union (YCFCU)

Altitude: 1410-2200 m.a.s.l.

Varietal: Ethiopian Heirloom

Notes:  the Oromia region is the birthplace of coffee and still accounts for over 65% of the coffee growing land in Ethiopia today.

Origin and Producers:

The kingdom of Kaffa, now politically defunct, is the area in which coffee was first commercialized for export and from which coffee derives its name. All plants of the species Coffea arabica around the world are descendants of plants from Kaffa.

This year’s lot comes from the hills of the Yirgacheffe region

Tumticha Cooperative has over 900 member farmers and is one of 23 member cooperatives that make up YCFCU. YCFCU represents nearly 45,000 farmers and over 300,000 family members. YCFCU was established in 2002, several years after our major partner in Ethiopia, Oromia Coffee Farmers’ Cooperative Union (OCFCU) was established.

Brewmaster says:

Flavour Profile:

Nectarine:
This coffee is bright and mildly citrusy; with some tropical fruit overtones and a syrupy mouth feel which give the initial impression of nectarines or apricots.

Malty:
Sweet roasted grains are prevalent in the mid-palate. These flavours are similar but distinct from roasted nut flavours like almonds and hazelnuts.

Dark Chocolate:
A deep semi-sweet chocolate-like flavour and mouth feel remains as the aftertaste.

 

The Roast Profile:
Roasted lightly, this coffee is taken gently into first crack. The roast development stage is short but assertive. Incremental heat reductions create sweetness and syrupy body while retaining stone fruit-like acidity and flavours.
