The beauty of specialty coffee
You know the feeling - the joy of buying something new. The excitement of discovering what lies inside. It is the emotional connection that gives the whole experience a new dimension.
This is a super classic washed coffee from Haru, in the heart of Yirgacheffe. They recently invested a lot in infrastructure at the washing station, to ferment under shade among other things.
Coffee is traditionally produced with de-pulping, wet fermentation, and sun-dried on raised beds. They have lately transformed their production from conventional to more specialty. We started to work with this family in 2019. They are a producer family living in Yirgacheffe town and have six washing stations in Yirgacheffe and Guji.

The family's export business, Kanketi Coffee export, was founded by their father. Siblings Tsedenia and Fikadu both grew up in Yirgacheffe, immersed in coffee their entire lives. This second-generation has a new vision and is exploring ways to improve the business and the livelihoods of the farmers it serves. The coffees have wonderful potential and can taste great. As this coffee rests and develops it can be of great value as a classic floral filter or baseline espresso as it has the very traditional and classic Yirgacheffe profile.
