This is a new one for the Kuma menu, our first time purchasing from the Chelbesa washing station, though for coffee fans this might be a familiar name. Synonymous with excellence is what this name is proving to be, the caliber of harvests coming out of Chelbesa is unrivaled. Washed Ethiopian coffees have been up and down over the last 5 years, we've often spent months tasting through offerings and not finding something high scoring enough to make it into the lineup. So far this year is proving very different.
Sophisticated and structured, vibrant watermelon candy notes with a clarity and focus, so sweet and clean, tea like notes of earl grey and a raspberry acidity. We got a good size parcel of this lot, couldn't be more thrilled about that. Enjoy this coffee
