What a lovely coffee. Sidamo coffee always has a soft spot in our offering list. Deep berries flavors with chocolaty body, you can't pass Sidamo coffee from you favorite coffee list. At cupping table coffee produced by Werka coffee station easily stood out from other peer. Clean and vibrant flavor make Werka coffee instantly become crowd favorite.West Arsi washing station located in Nansebo Woreda, it is a coffee processing center to 750 smallholder farmers live nearby. The washing station by owned by Taysel Yonis company Testi Trading PLC.
We have been buying regularly coffee produce by Testi and extremely satisfied by their quality standard. As coffee roaster we understand main quality control start come from selective picking process (picking ripe cherries, floating sorting, daily picking). Taysel Yonis take it a step further by investing in coffee grading machine. By utilize the machine capability to sort coffee by density, defect and screen size it delivery consistency in coffee cup quality. It required certain level scale operation to be able deliver top specialty coffee like what Taysel Yonis did.
I heard a lot about West Arsi washing station coffee. Rumor said it has excellent coffee quality since it is from Werka kebele. So I bought this coffee for our this month offering and what else that I can say about it. Bullseye! another excellent Ethiopia coffee. I like the combination of strawberry flavors and cacao nibs finishing. It gives sensation like eating Cadburry strawberry flavored chocolate bar. During cupping I smell strong fragrance and aroma of blueberry, boysenberry, strawberry, Vanilla, Fig and Tea-Like. West Arsi natural coffee definitely deliver the quality that I expect from Sidamo coffee. The flavors of strawberry, blueberry, coffee cherry and cacao nibs is so enjoyable during cupping. This is one of the highest score Ethiopia coffee that we have in store. This coffee is perfect match for V60, concave shape dripper will boost the coffee flavors complexity.
