Geta Bore Lot 3
ROAST | LIGHT
ORIGIN | GOMMA, JIMMA, ETHIOPIA
NOTES | FLORAL, CANDIED CITRUS, PEACH, HONEY
Every year it is a race to get the first washed Ethiopian coffees to the US, and out to customers. These coffees represent most clearly what the majority of coffee professionals love about coffee. Clean bright acidity, with floral and complex fruit notes. This is what I (Kyle) personally gravitate towards, and was the first coffee for me that gave me that transcendent "Ah, Ha" moment, when I realized coffee could be so much more than bitter and brown.
We are so happy to get a super early offering to the market with the help of Tim Hill and Atlantic Specialty. Geta Bore is a member of one of our favorite production groups: Kata Muduga Famers Union. They produce some of the best coffees in Ethiopia year after year- this lot is steller.
This lot in particular has more of a fruited profile than our more recent coffees from Worka. Flowers and candied citrus are the first things you will experience, next this beautiful acidity like fresh stonefruit, along with almost a peach tea. Of course, the lingering flavor is that amazing Ethiopian coffee sweetness.
Geta Bore Farmers Cooperative is relatively new, established in 2018. It is comprised of 232 smallholders who deliver ripe red cherry to local wet mills. The cooperative's producers are located in the higher-altitude areas of Gomma Woreda, which can be difficult to reach during the rainy season because of hazardous road conditions. The members typically travel by horse or donkey to deliver their harvest to the cooperative.
