Degefa

Subtle & Delicate

An experimental processing lends this Ethiopian coffee a rich and buttery pastry crust sort of sweetness in addition to notes of orange marmalade and fresh flowers.

    Roaster’s Notes
    Believed to be the birthplace of coffee, Ethiopia is known to produce some of the best coffee in the world. With this rich heritage, most coffees are processed very traditionally either as natural or washed. This Degefa however pushes the boundaries of coffee processing in Ethiopia with its experimental fermentation.
