Year after year, this coffee by Brandywine delights us: it was one of the first coffees we ever featured in our collection. Chelbesa is the largest growing area in the coffee-famed Gedeb region of Ethiopia and this naturally processed lot is bursting with sweet berry notes. We also tasted lemon and jasmine, with a buttery aroma, a sparkling citric acidity and a silky creamy body.
