Big, tropical fruit sangria, with citrus infused dark chocolate, and sweet watermelon candy. Super clean and fruity!

Some notes from the Importer(Coffee Quest):

"Yirgacheffe Gargari Station is located in the Gargari Kebele or Village in the southern part of Ethiopia. It is managed by Birhanu Geda and is located 22 km from the city of Gedeb, consisting of 2.5 hectares, and sitting at an elevation of 1,983 m.a.s.l. It is dedicated to producing both washed and natural coffees, where more than 3,200 farmers contribute on a weekly basis, mostly with 74110 variety.

For the Washed Lot, the farmers start by handpicking the ripest cherries from their crops. They are then de-pulped and placed to ferment for 12 hours, washed and then further fermented for an additional 48 to 72 hours. Upon the final washing, the coffee beans are placed on African beds to dry for 8 to 12 days, depending on the climate. The Natural lots are also handpicked at peak ripeness and then immediately spread across African drying beds to dry for approximately 19 to 25 days. Throughout this time, the cherries are regularly moved and rotated to ensure a uniform drying process. 

This Natural lot is a unique because it comes from a group of farmers who grow a variety locally known as “Kurume”, a super tiny bean comparable to the size of beans from the mocca variety!

The driving force behind these Gargari Coffee lots is their producer: Primrose Coffee, whom beyond their dedication to crafting outstanding coffees, are deeply committed to making a positive impact on the communities involved.

Led by Mr. Abreham Mengiste & Mrs. Meseret Workneh, they have focused on various social responsibility programs, such as schools and bridge construction projects, and providing essential school supplies to students. Primrose Coffee understands the importance of fostering sustainable growth and empowering the farmers who contribute to their success
