Ethiopia Yirgacheffe Adado Grade 1 Washed

We taste : very clean cup, chocolate, flowers, strawberry and a touch of liver.

Probably is Adado my favorite micro region within Yirgacheffe. Stone fruit, and lots of it, is the predominant flavour profile of the area. Apricots and peaches with supportive citrus and floral higher tones come together in a delightful cup.
These are the words of our friends from Cafe Imports, who has been dealing this fantastic coffee to us.
The plateau where they picked this coffee goes up to 2400 meters high!!!
The Adado Cooperative washing station in the southeastern Ethiopian highlands is one of the best in the country.
The people, living in the Gedeo Zone, south of the capital Addis Ababa, are considered to be a culturally and linguistically distinct group. They are bordered by the Sidama in the East, the Alaba in the North, the Burji in the West and the Guji in the South. All of these groups belong tot the Eastern Cushitic speaking poeple, who traditionally occupied the upper reaches of the Rift Valley escarpment in northern Sidamo. Today the Gedo Zone is one of the most densely populated parts of Ethiopia and the main production area for the world famous Yirgacheffe and Sidamo coffees.
I have to admit we beat you almost to death with another Ethiopian, but isn’t it so this year, they are all clean, fruity and very long lasting? This you won’t find anywhere else than in the bird cage of coffee, Ethiopia!
