Our apologies - Kaffa Oromia is now sold out and is no longer available.

Notes:  the Oromia region is the birthplace of coffee and still accounts for over 65% of the coffee growing land in Ethiopia today.

Origin and Producers:

The kingdom of Kaffa, now politically defunct, is the area in which coffee was first commercialized for export and from which coffee derives its name. All plants of the species Coffea arabica around the world are descendants of plants from Kaffa.

This year’s lot comes from the hills of the Yirgacheffe region

Abado Cooperative has over 1100 member farmers and is one of 24 member cooperatives that make up YCFCU. YCFCU represents  45,000 farmers and over 300,000 family members. YCFCU was established in 2002, several years after our major partner in Ethiopia, Oromia Coffee Farmers’ Cooperative Union (OCFCU) was established.

Flavour Profile:

Nectarine:

This coffee is bright and mildly citrusy; with some tropical fruit overtones and a syrupy mouth feel which give the initial impression of nectarines or apricots.

Dark Malt:

Sweet roasted grains are prevalent in the mid-palate. These flavours are similar but distinct from roasted nut flavours like almonds and hazelnuts.

Chocolate:

A deep semi-sweet chocolate-like flavour and mouth feel remains as the aftertaste.

 

The Roast Profile:

Roasted medium-light, this coffee is driven firmly into first crack. The roast development stage is short but aggressive. Incremental gas reductions drive down the acidity while retaining stonefruit characteristics, bringing out syrupy sweetness and caramel malt in the mid-palate.
