This exotic microlot is bought to us by our friends at Utopia Coffee. Tamiru Tadesse is a coffee producer who has been in the coffee business for the last eight years. Originally from Bensa in Sidama, a region known for its agriculture, agreeable climate, and fertility, most of Tamiru’s acquaintances just like everyone in the region are engaged in growing coffee in their backyards and farms.
Tamiru was last year’s Ethiopian COE winner (for anaerobic lot), a reward for his passion and excellence toward coffee processing and production.
“We participated in the Cup of Excellence 2021 to promote the coffee our farmers grow and to establish better market linkage and improve the farmers’ income”.
This beautiful exotic coffee is in very limited supply.
The coffee is hand-picked and naturally processed/ fermented (whole cherries) for up to 21-26 days depending on weather condition.
Tasting: Intense and clean in the cup, complex. Geranium, creamy citrus & dark fruits. Full of flavour. It is a simply outstanding coffee
