This is an exquisite representation of the region of Uraga, extremely high up in the Guji highlands. It is a complex cup, layered with ripe watermelon, singing acidity, and jasmine-like florals.
This coffee comes under the careful eye of the Yabitu Koba manager and coffee legend Feku Jebril, and is grown at some of the highest coffee growing elevations in the world. Coffees from this region of Uraga are relatively new, and have only really existed in their own right for around ten years. Before that, they were trucked across the border, blended, and sold as Yirgacheffe. Luckily, these unique coffees are now being processed and sold separately, and have become some of the most favourite flavour profiles from Ethiopia.
