Shiferaw Alako, Lot 5 – Ethiopia – Gardelli – Espresso and Filter
Shiferaw Alako, Lot 5 – Ethiopia – Gardelli – Espresso and Filter – We selected this lot during the last Operation Cherry Red Auction that took place for the very first time in June 2018!
This lot is produced by a single farmer named Shiferaw Alako who brought the coffee cherries to the nearest Ato. Mijane washing station.
The Ato. Mijane washing station was established in 2012 by Ato Mijane – Ato stands for mister. It is located around Sakaro, a village in the Gedeb district, near Worka. Gedeb is most-definitely one of our’s favourite districts that produce Yirgacheffe coffee – because it is known for its purple-fruit and intense floral notes. A notable difference in the Gedeb region, compared to other Yirgacheffe districts, is the state of plantations. The soil seems more nutritious and trees look more vital than they do in the northern part of Yirgacheffe.
