Worka Sakaro is a small, high altitude area in the Gedeb district close to Yirgacheffe, where around 300 small farm holders deliver cherries to the local mill. This lot was first fermented for 16 hours and then anaerobically processed for 3-7 days, before being dried on raised beds. We found a boozy-candy fragrance and tasted grape soda, tangerine, dark chocolate cherries, and hibiscus, with a lingering citric acidity and a clean, tea-like body.

Every coffee we share has been tasted and recommended by our expert Tasting Panel who have years of experience in specialty coffee. We cast a wide net, trying hundreds of coffees, keeping an open mind to new regions, processes, and roasters, and going through many rounds of cupping. If there was an easier way of choosing each coffee, we wouldn't want to do it.
