The majority of coffees grown in Gedeb are local landrace varieties (which are often also called Ethiopian heirloom). Other varieties grown in the region were developed by the Jimma Agricultural Research Centre (JARC). JARC is an important research center for Ethiopia and has done a great deal of work on developing disease-resistant and high-yielding varieties that still demonstrate quality in the cup. 

Most farmers in the region farm on fewer than 5 hectares with cultivation methods remaining traditional - coffee is grown as part of an integrated ‘coffee garden’, and intercropped with other food crops.  In addition to remaining traditionally intercropped, most farms are also organic-by-default. Farmers in Yirgacheffe typically use very few—if any—fertilisers or pesticides. All coffee is selectively hand-harvested before being delivered to a collection center or directly to the washing station.

This is a complex and bright cup. Featuring notes of apricot nectar, limoncello and elderflower. It is an exceptional choice for those enjoying a filter coffee.

*all coffee is delivered as whole bean unless specified otherwise*
