Another amazing coffee from our friends at Utopia Coffee.

This stunning microlot is produced by a dedicated husband-and-wife team who run this exceptional farm. Shitaye Mamo Shalo, is a skilled farmer and producer, she is also the mastermind behind this exquisite coffee.

Located in the picturesque Gedeb woreda of the Gedio zone, the farm employs anaerobic yeast fermentation to enhance the coffee's flavours. Only the finest cherries are handpicked from the 5-hectare farm and undergo meticulous floating to eliminate imperfections. They are then transferred to a fermentation tank with the yeast strain "Saccharomyces cerevisiae," creating an enchanting anaerobic environment where CO2 interacts harmoniously.

After 9 days of fermentation, the cherries are carefully dried on raised beds for 25 days, ensuring the perfect moisture content. The result is a cup of coffee that embodies passion, precision, and uncompromising quality.
