Ethiopia Cheri Nyekundu

This sure is one racy Ethiopian that puckers your palate with berries-like flavours. Look beyond that and you will find yourself enjoying softer notes of vanilla and toffee.

About This Coffee
Mok’i yale selamita! (Warm greetings in Amharic which is among the largest first languages in Ethiopia)
The Cheri Nyekundu is a natural or dry processed coffee grown at altitudes of between 1,900 to 2,150 metres above sea level in the Gedeb Zone in the Yirgacheffee Highlands, Southern region of Ethiopia.
Once harvested and collected, the ripe cherries under-go extensive sorting to make sure the very best quality is retained for the next phase where they are dried for about 2 - 4 weeks depending on the weather conditions on African raised beds. The cherries are raked and turned in the daytime in order to ensure a consistent drying process. The drying of the beans inside the coffee fruit enables the sweet fruity mucilage of the coffee cherry to permeate the inner beans, achieving a prominent floral and fruity sweetness character.
