Man I love coffee from Ethiopia! In the same way I love the Chelbessa, because it's a perfect example of a Yirgacheffe. The Shakisso is all Sidama baby! Get ready for candied orange peel, tropical mango, a hint of spice, a bit of English toffee, and that classic round body reminiscent of port wine. If you didn't click add to cart you're brain dead. Mash the button your tongue will thank you...and me.
Dude, I like this one in the dang Hario V60 to highlight the dynamics in the cup. Throw in 28g and pour 420g of water over the top. Shoot for a brew time of just over 3.5 minutes and buckle the heck up for a wild ride.
This coffee grows in the Oromia region, one of Ethiopia’s largest regions. The farm is located in the Guji zone, the southern part of Oromia that borders on the Sidama and Gedeo zones. The farm started to produce organic coffees in 2001 and works closely together with medium-sized growers who are specialized in this highland forest coffee. Trabocca stepped in five yearsago to co-monitor operations and logistics. We donated a cupping lab and every year we try to upgrade the quality and quantity.
The enterprise has 640 hectares with its own nursery sites to grow coffee seedlings. There are currently twelve permanent qualified members of staff with more than ten years practical experience in coffee production, processing, clearing and marketing. In addition to the permanent staff, we employ three highly qualified consultants and temporary workers. During harvest, we have more than 300 coffee pickers harvesting coffee. About 150 of them supply coffee individually to the wet mill.
Web-store orders are roasted and shipped to order Monday through Friday to ensure maximum freshness.
