SEY | Ethiopia Ayele Tulu, Washed Local Landrace
From our friends at Sey:
This selection is a continuation of our exploration of Sidama. Demeka Becha is a new washing station for us, and we couldn't be more excited about the potential and the future. In the cup we find watermelon Jolly Rancher, candied grapefruit, and kumquat.
Bona Zuria, Sidama
2,100 - 2,200 masl
Hand picked at peak ripeness. Floated to further remove defects and depulped on the day of harvest. Wet fermented for 48 hours. Dried on raised beds for 9-12 days until the coffee reaches approximately 10% moisture content.
Demeka Becha is located at the very top of a hill, which makes for ideal airflow and excellent coffee processing conditions. As we continue exploring Sidama and tasting through a rather insane amount of samples, the coffee from this particular day, from this particular washing station, really stood out above the rest. This is another very new project for us, and we are very excited about seeing it develop in the future.
