Balanced, creamy body with finely attuned acidity. Peach, orange and bergamot in the aroma. Organic.

The washing station Alaka is located in the Guji region where farmers near the village Benti Nenqa have supplied coffee beans for this lot. These are wild arabica varieties from the birthplace of coffee, grown organically in 2000 to 2200 moh and harvested in January 2018.

Alaka is part of the family-owned company Metad, run by three brothers; Aman, Tariku and Michael. They share a clear devotion to helping farmers produce better quality and implement sustainable practices. The coffee is certified organic and Metad offer education and technical assistance to the farmers.

We have paid 286% above market price ($4.95 /lbs FOB). Roasted light.
