Wonderful Gedeb-like characteristics are back! The berry flavor of this coffee closely resembles strawberry flavors. With a herbalicious quality, more specifically like a minty basil. The pluot is a stone fruit hybrid of plum and apricot.
Ethiopia Yirgacheffe 1 Bedhatu Jibicho GrainPro is produced by Bedhatu Jibicho. Bedhatu was born and raised in Worka where her farm is also located. She started working in coffee in the 1960s when the government gave land to her husband. Bedhatu takes great pride in the fact that she has managed the farm operations for over 50 years, even before her husband passed away in 1991. As Bedhatu is now over 80 years old, her adult children have started to become more involved in continuing her rich tradition of coffee production. The family plans to use the premiums from coffee sales to expand production and start an export company.
In 2016, a different coffee from Ethiopia, the Ethiopia Gedeo was one of the keys to winning the competition, "America's Best Cold Brew" at Coffee Fest.
