Region Yirga Cheffee -Konga
Varietal Ethiopian Heirloom
Notes: Dried on raised bed. The tasting flavors we pulled include cranberry, and lemon zest. We really enjoyed the flavors as it cools.
Konga is about four kilometers south of the town of Yirga Cheffe and nearby both Harfusa and Biloya. The Konga micro region of Yirgacheffee is known for both its strong citrus (mostly lemon this year) and supportive stonefruit flavors of peach and apricot and when this is combined with processing as a natural, the result is dried cherry, cranberry, and lemonade like acidity.
One of the great things about Ethiopian coffees is the complete mix of varietals. It is estimated that somewhere between six thousand and ten thousand varietals exist naturally in these highlands, the origin of coffee.
