Another amazing coffee from our friends at Utopia Coffee.
This stunning microlot is produced by a group of small holder farmers from villages in the Gideo, Gedeb and Kebele regions. These areas are renowned for the perfect conditions and climate for growing premium coffee. The fresh ripe coffee cherries are hand picked before being collected and sent to the Mulugeta Sintayehu wet mill for further sorting and processing.
The ripe, red cherries are sorted again at the mill before being placed into fermentation bags and sealed. Air is removed from the bags and CO2 added, this process is repeated several times until the required fermentation and alcohol content is reached. The coffee is finished with further natural fermentation and drying on raised African beds.
