Description
 

This is one of our favorite coffees this year! Right off the bat, it offers a sweet berry and milk chocolate aroma. The flavors become defined in the cup with delicate notes of blackberry, raspberry jam and lemon along with cocoa powder undertones.

The Konga mill is owned by Mekuriya Mergiya with 800 (roughly) contributing farmers. The average farm size is 1600 hectares with an altitude 1800-2000 M. Most of the coffee varietals at this mill are Ethiopian heirloom cultivars, taking up to 18 hours of fermentation. They dry on raised African beds for roughly 21 days. This natural process is a great factor in manifesting the delicious Ethiopian flavor we've all been accustomed to.

Cooperatives in Ethiopia belong to a union that is responsible for selling and exporting coffee. They also take care of dry milling and grading before exports. Most Yirgacheffe Cooperatives belongs to the Yirgacheffe coffee growers Cooperative union. The management of the Yirgacheffe Union is very hands-on, and is supportive to the growers, the Cooperative wet mills, as well as following up to buyers.

Another excellent Ethiopian coffee August 28, 2014
Reviewer: Travis Hill from Boise, ID United States  
I've always loved the Ethiopian coffees, so I had to try this one and the Kochere. The two coffees are distinctly different in flavor, yet both have hints and aromas that let you know they are from the same 'family'.

On its own, Wote is a very flavorful, very smooth coffee. I've mixed a little of this with the Roasters United Competition Blend and experienced a whole new flavor (as I did when I mixed a 50-50 of Wote + Panamanian Elida).

It's impossible to say which I like better, the Wote or the Kochere. Each is fantastic in its own way. I'm interested to see what I come up blending the two together!

Can't Stop Drinking June 23, 2014
Reviewer: Jennifer Malone from , CA United States  
It's a delightful, sweet and mild brew with hints of berries and vanilla. Considering I have a gruesome 9 to 5 grind, this coffee makes my day a lot better.
