Ethiopia - Semelo, Yirgacheffe

Peach. Orange. Jasmine.

The Semelo washed is one of those rare coffees that will make you question what coffee can taste like while being totally approachable. Crisp and very fruit forward, this washed-process portrays notes of stone fruits, spices and florals.

The Semelo farm is owned by three brothers: Aman, Micheal and Tariku Adinew. The property belonged to their parents but had been abandoned for decades until they invested and reclaimed the family tradition of coffee farming. The farm is certified organic, and the brothers have a tremendous heart for people and quality coffee. Within Semelo there are multiple microlot areas to choose from, each with their own distinct flavour profile. This year this particular washed lot is our favourite.
