GREEN-UNROASTED

Ethiopians are proud to claim coffee as having been first discovered growing wild in their majestic highlands. With the coffee ceremony foundation to their national culture, Ethiopians cherish coffee as both a drink which unites the nation, and a treasure to share with sharp coffee drinkers from every corner of the world.

Fed by fresh mountain water, and matured through 'thirteen months' of sunshine, the rich resonance and variety of the sundried coffees contrast with the delightful floral and aromatic flavors of the natural coffees to provide an unrivaled range of tastes, highly esteemed by many and fully loving up to their reputation as outstanding specialty coffee.

This coffee was sourced by Mike, earlier this year during his Ethiopian Cupping Caravan Trip. This caravan brought 24 international coffee buyers face to face with the people who grow some of the best coffee in the world. The cupping caravan in February 2010 was an exploratory trip designed to benefit coffee professionals on both ends of the chain, from farmers to roasters.

Coffee Reviewed scored Ethiopian Gedeo Worka 92 points, there blind assessment was stated as: "big, syrupy mouthfeel and a long, deeply resonant finish particularly distinguish this coffee, but the rich acidity is impressive too, as are the sweetly pungent aromatics: fir, dark chocolate, cherry, almond."

love 'em all...but ethiopia rules September 28, 2012
Reviewer: frank the maestro from san carlos, CA United States  
seriously, the previous offering from konga zone just made me smirk like someone who made a really great decision, as it gave up espresso-like qualities in my french press even in the lighter roasts, but with ample fruit.

the worka makes me smirk from the time I smell the green beans, through the blushing fruit smells wafting from the roaster, to the cup that speaks volumes after a good 72 hour rest.  less intensely roasty than the konga, but just packed with syrupy fruitiness to match those intense aromatics.

yes, my friends, when well selected like mr. perry and friends obviously succeeded in doing, ethiopia rules the roost (or is that roast ?)  thanks klatch for letting me buy these green and feel like a genius!
