 THE STORY BEHIND

This is going to be easily the best coffee of 2016!!!

The Guji region of Sidamo, along the Mora Mora River in southern Ethiopia, produces “forest coffee”, or coffee trees that grow wild. The region also has numerous small coffee farms that pool their coffee in a co-op for milling and export. Guji coffee is heirloom. What that means to us is that it is not a modern cultivar, but a traditional coffee that is unchanged from the very earliest coffees grown in this area.
This is one of three lots that we chose directly at the source after extensive cupping that started back in February.
This lot has been processed at the Ch'Ire Ameli washing station in the Nensebo woreda, Guji terroir. More than 700 small holder farmers bring their cherries to Ch'Ire Ameli, who then made an impressive selection and an outstanding natural process using the traditional raised beds.
This lot has been named after a mythical Arsi hero, Roba Butta, due to the exceptional quality.
We never tasted anything like this before, it is so far the highest cup score we gave to an Ethiopian lot.
