Compared to our standard Ethiopian Yirgacheffe, the Gedeb Natural from Ethiopia is a case study in contrasts. Providing a glimpse into the earliest days of coffee harvesting and production, the coffee is left to dry inside the cherry for an extended period of time, instead of being de-pulped and washed. This natural process results in a vibrant, fruity taste which delights even the most seasoned coffee drinker. We are excited to showcase this special selection from Ethiopia – the birthplace of coffee.
