The community of farmers around Hambela station carefully tend their high elevation plots throughout the year. The high elevation of these coffees slows their ripening, imparting the distinct complexity of Guji coffees. Come the harvest season, each ripe cherry is hand picked and brought to the washing station. There the coffee is washed and milled before being sun dried. To ensure even drying and the cleanest cup, the cherries are hand racked and turned throughout the day and covered at night for 30 days. Hambelas thoughtful processing allows the flavor characteristic of this region to shine.
In the cup, we find notes of kumquat, golden raspberry, and violet.
