Chelbessa

Yirgacheffe is part of the Sidamo region in Ethiopia; however it's considered its own recognized micro-region due to the unique coffee profile produced on its territory. The Yirgacheffe region is known to have thick vegetation, healthy soil, and high elevations.

This coffee is sourced from the Chelbessa Washing Station in Gedeb, Yirgacheffe. All coffee is selectively hand-harvested before being delivered to the washing station. Once there, Chelbessa’s team ensures that only the ripest cherries are processed. After being sorted, coffee is pulped and then fermented for 24-36 hours, depending on the weather conditions. Once fermentation is complete, the parchment is thoroughly washed in clean water and send through grading channels, which separate each lot into two grades based on density. Once graded, the coffee is soaked in clean spring water in tanks for 12-24 hours to remove all traces of fermented mucilage.

The resulting cup reminds us of peach, lemongrass, and champagne.

Bonjour Astrid, Merci d'avoir pris le temps de laisser cet avis. Pourriez-vous nous fournir plus d'informations sur votre expérience ? Nous avons terminé notre stock de ce café début avril, donc je crains que vous n'ayez bu un café assez vieux. Si vous avez un de nos sachets, veuillez m'indiquer la date et le numéro de lot afin que je puisse faire un suivi. Aussi, pourriez-vous me dire comment vous avez préparé le café ? Si vous en avez encore, peut-être pourrions-nous vous aider à obtenir une meilleure extraction. Vous pouvez répondre ici ou envoyer un e-mail à notre Directeur de Produit à liam@kittelcoffee.com
