DANCHE

Producer Profile

Our first Ethiopian of the season is a special prep lot from Danche Washing Station in Yirgacheffe. The station, owned by SNAP Specialty Coffee, is in the hamlet of Chelbesa, within the village of Danche. The station was built in 2019 and purchases ripe cherry from the producers of Danche. This special prep lot was sent via air freight, which is why it is arriving earlier than the rest of our Ethiopian selections. This lot underwent a three stage fermention, starting with a 48 hour dry, in-cherry ferment. It was then placed in a tank with water uncovered for 24 hours, the tank was then covered for the next 24 hours. Finally, the coffee was de-pulped and laid out to dry for 25 days

 

 

 

Gedeo

The Gedeo Zone, part of the SNNPR in Southern Ethiopia is one of the most famous coffee growing areas of Ethiopia, and is home to the legendary Yirgacheffe. Much of the coffee production here is semi-forested, and elevations start at 1,800 on the "low-end."

Dega & Wolisho

Dega and Wolisho are both Ethiopian Landrace varieties named after indigenous trees.
